National Manufacturing Day 2017

On October 6th, we hosted 32 students from Aloha and Southridge high schools to tour our office for National Manufacturing Day. They learned about packaging and product testing in our production area, saw demos of our sensors with Dave Vernier, played in our augmented reality sandbox, and asked questions with Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici.

Graphical Analysis 4.1 Update

Version 4.1 of Graphical Analysis for Chrome, macOS, and Windows® is now available. The free update is available through the Chrome Web Store or our website.

  • Go Direct sensors can now be calibrated.
  • The Drop Counter can now be calibrated.
  • Multiple identical sensors now have numbers appended to the column names for easier identification.
  • Because of limited functionality while running within a browser, the Chrome version can no longer be opened on macOS or Windows; instead, users are prompted to get the native macOS or Windows version.
  • Windows 7 is now supported for USB connection to sensors, as well as Data Sharing and Manual Entry use.

NSTA Blog Reviews Go Direct 3-Axis Magnetic Field Sensor

The NSTA Blog recently highlighted the Vernier Go Direct 3-Axis Magnetic Field Sensor in the article, “The Vernier Three-Axis Magnetic Field Sensor: A Magic Wand for Magnets.” Reviewer Martin Horejsi discusses the sensor’s benefits for science classrooms and calls it “a breakthrough in capability, size, weight, price, and most important performance.”

He concludes the review by saying:

“Conducting experiments and inspections with magnets is as easy as waving your magic wand. Don’t have a magic wand? Then use the next best thing, a Go Direct Vernier Three-Axis Magnetic Field Sensor.”

The Go Direct 3-Axis Magnetic Field Sensor measures the components of the magnetic field along three orthogonal axes. This allows students to determine the magnitude and direction of the magnetic field at any point in space. Students can also measure the field along only two axes, or even one axis, choosing the direction that is best for the experiment.

The Go Direct family of sensors offers teachers and students maximum versatility to collect scientific data either wirelessly or via a USB connection. The 16 low-cost sensors, which are designed primarily for chemistry, physical science, and middle school science, can be used in more than 190 teacher-tested experiments developed by Vernier and are supported by free graphing and analysis software, the Graphical Analysis™ 4 app.
