Vernier Software & Technology is now accepting applications for its 2014 Engineering Contest that recognizes STEM educators for introducing students to engineering concepts and practices through innovative uses of Vernier sensors. A middle school teacher, a high school teacher, and a college instructor will each win prizes valued at $5,500.
Educators interested in applying for this contest must submit a video showcasing the use of Vernier sensors in a project or experiment. Applications are due by January 15, 2014.
The sensors may be used in conjunction with Vernier’s Logger Pro software, NI LabVIEW software, LEGO NXT or EV3, VEX, or any other system incorporating Vernier sensors.
Each winner will receive $1,000 in cash, $3,000 in Vernier technology, and $1,500 towards expenses to attend the 2014 National Science Teachers’ Association (NSTA) STEM conference or the 2014 American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) conference.
