Vernier Software & Technology is now accepting applications for its 2016 Engineering Contest. The contest recognizes engineering, science, and STEM teachers for their creative use of Vernier sensors to teach students engineering concepts and practices. Three winning teachers — one middle school teacher, one high school teacher, and one college instructor — will each receive prizes valued at $5,500.
To enter, teachers must complete an online application form, as well as produce and submit a short video showcasing their engineering project involving Vernier sensors in action. The sensors may be used in conjunction with Vernier’s LoggerPro software, NI LabVIEW software, Arduino, LEGO MINDSTORMS, VEX, or any other system incorporating Vernier sensors.
Each winner will receive $1,000 in cash, $3,000 in Vernier technology, and $1,500 toward expenses to attend the 2016 National Science Teachers’ Association (NSTA) STEM conference or the 2016 American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) conference.
