Brazilian Professors Train at Vernier

Brazil Group

Seventeen professors of physics, chemistry, biology, and mathematics recently spent four days at Vernier for in-depth, hands-on training on the latest tools for data logging in the science teaching laboratory. They represented several different universities throughout Brazil. They were joined by representatives of Hiperlab, Vernier’s Brazilian representative, and hosted by Jake Hopkins, Verle Walters, and Gerard Ezcurra. They even provided a Brazilian serenade at the Vernier Oktoberfest celebration!
