Students learn by doing. Hands-on investigations challenge students to sharpen critical thinking skills and help teachers as they support the three-dimensional learning approach. Our new partnership with OpenSciEd gives middle school teachers access to free high-quality instructional materials that integrate our data-collection technology and align with the Next Generation Science Standards.
OpenSciEd is a nonprofit with a goal of improving the quality
of—and access to—science-focused instructional materials.
When Vernier technology is paired with OpenSciEd’s curriculum, students establish a deep understanding of critical scientific concepts through data collection.
