Intel Engineers Take Vernier Equipment to Schools in Kenya

Employees from Intel and VMware spent two weeks in Kenya last May as part of a joint service-learning project sponsored by the Intel Education Service Corps and Team4Tech, in conjunction with the Portland-based nonprofit Orphans Overseas. The team upgraded the computer lab at the Karibu Centre preschool, opened permanent computer labs in two local public schools, and made preparations to open two additional labs, with the potential to impact over 1000 students. The team also made early plans for an after-school program in science and math, providing training on Vernier equipment to the local Kenyan teachers.

Vernier International Guests Map Their Journey from the Oregon Coast

Vernier international dealers

This summer, 43 international representatives from 26 countries and six continents visited Vernier headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon. The three days they were here were spent learning more about Vernier products, learning how other countries market Vernier products, and traveling to Oregon’s scenic coast.

The return journey from the Oregon coast with the international guests was mapped with the built-in GPS sensor on LabQuest 2 and the Vernier Barometer. Altitude and GPS data were imported into Logger Pro 3 and then exported to Google Maps. The altitude was color-coded on the map. The color-coding feature that applies graduated color to your exported map can be activated during the export process.
