Annual Vernier/NSTA Technology Awards open

Vernier Software & Technology and the National Science Teachers’ Association (NSTA) are now accepting applications for the annual Vernier/NSTA Technology Awards. The 2013 awards program will recognize up to seven educators – including one elementary teacher, two middle school teachers, three high school teachers, and one college-level educator – who promote the innovative use of data-collection technology.

Prizes include $1,000 in cash, $3,000 in Vernier products and up to $1,500 toward expenses to attend the 2013 NSTA National Conference in San Antonio, TX. All applications, either self-nominated or nominated by a colleague, must be submitted by November 30, 2012.

Last year’s winning entries encompassed a wide range of data-collection activities, including the collection of wind speed data, the investigation of varying light levels in different environments, the design of a walking robot, the building of an audio-frequency working model of a phased-array radar, and more.
