Friends of Trees

On October 28th, 23 Vernier Software & Technology employees volunteered their time to plant trees in the wetlands near our office. This was a joint project with the non-profit group, The Friends of Trees. We planted 200 trees and spent a lot of effort to make sure the trees survive. The trees that were planted in the same spot five years ago were all destroyed by nutria from the nearby creek. We used tubes, stakes, and wire to keep the nutria away.

It was a physically exhausting job, but we had a good time and it will be very interesting to watch the trees grow over the next few years.

Experimenting with a Thermocouple

Thermocouples are one of the most common temperature sensors. They can be used to measure temperatures between -200 and 1400 degrees Celsius. If you have never had the opportunity to do an experiment using a Vernier Thermocouple, here are three activities to try: Flame Mapping, Bending Glass, and Heating Curve for Ethanol. This might be just what you need to heat things up this fall.

English Language Learners Use Go!Temp for Language Growth
