Each year, Vernier sponsors the NABT Ecology/Environmental Science Teaching Award. The award includes $500 toward travel to the NABT Professional Development Conference and $1,000 of Vernier equipment. Applications for the 2016 Award will be available on the NABT website soon after the November conference, and the deadline for submission is March 15, 2016.
Vernier Software & Technology and the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) are now accepting applications for the annual Vernier/NSTA Technology Awards. The 2016 awards program will recognize up to seven educators—one elementary teacher, two middle school teachers, three high school teachers, and one college-level educator—who promote the innovative use of data-collection technology.
Prizes include $1,000 in cash, $3,000 in Vernier products, and up to $1,500 toward expenses to attend the 2016 NSTA National Conference in Nashville, TN. Award recipients will be chosen based on their application, which is judged by a panel of NSTA-appointed experts. All applications must be submitted by November 30, 2015.
Tell us how you are using Vernier sensors in the classroom to teach engineering concepts and engineering practices, and you could win one of three $5,500 awards (one for middle school, one for high school, and one for college).
Are your students using Vernier sensors in the engineering design process? Maybe you are challenging your students to control digital output based on sensor input. Are you testing trusses and building bridges? Perhaps your students are writing NI LabVIEW™ or ROBOTC® code to read a Vernier sensor from a robotics platform such as LEGO®, VEX®, or Arduino™. Tell us about it so that you might win!
Each award will consist of $1,000 in cash, $3,000 in Vernier technology, and $1,500 toward expenses to attend either the 2016 NSTA STEM conference or the 2016 ASEE conference.
