Vernier Software & Technology is accepting applications for its 2017 Engineering Contest. The contest recognizes science and STEM teachers for their creative uses of Vernier sensors to teach students engineering concepts and practices. Two winning teachers—one middle school teacher and one high school teacher—will each receive prizes valued at $5,500.
To enter, educators must complete an online application, as well as produce a video that showcases the engineering project in action, describes the Vernier sensors being used, and highlights the engineering concepts being addressed. The sensors may be used in conjunction with Logger Pro software, NI LabVIEW software, LEGO NXT, 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 2017 National Science Teachers’ Association (NSTA) STEM conference or the 2017 American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) conference.
