Vernier Software & Technology is accepting applications for its 2018 Vernier Engineering Contest, which recognizes science, engineering, 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.
Applications for the Vernier Engineering Contest are due by February 15, 2018, and winners will be announced in March on the Vernier website and Facebook page. To enter, educators must complete an online application, as well as produce a video showcasing the engineering project in action, the Vernier sensors being used, and the engineering concepts being addressed.The sensors may be used in conjunction with any Vernier software or with NI LabVIEW™ software, Arduino, Scratch, LEGO®, VEX®, or any other system.
Each winner will receive $1,000 in cash, $3,000 in Vernier technology, and $1,500 toward expenses to attend the 2018 National Science Teachers’ Association (NSTA) STEM conference or the 2018 American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) conference.
