Grant Rewards Innovative Educators Using Data-Collection Technology

Vernier Software & Technology and the National Science Teachers’ Association (NSTA) are accepting applications for the annual Vernier/NSTA Technology Awards. The awards, valued at $3,000 each, will recognize up to seven educators who demonstrate the best inquiry-based, hands-on learning activities using data-collection technology interfaced with computers, TI graphing calculators and other handheld devices such as the Vernier LabQuest.

Each award consists of $1,000 in cash, $1,000 in Vernier equipment and up to $1,000 towards travel and expenses for attending NSTA’s 2012 National Convention. Award recipients, including one elementary teacher, two middle school teachers, three high school teachers and one college-level educator, will be chosen based on their application which is judged by a panel of NSTA-appointed experts. All applications, either self-nominated or nominated by a colleague, are due by November 30, 2011.
