Vernier Software & Technology is now accepting applications for its 2015 Engineering Contest, recognizing STEM teachers for their innovative teaching of engineering concepts and practices using Vernier sensors in the classroom. Three winning teachers — one middle school teacher, one high school teacher, and one college instructor — will each receive prizes valued at $5,500.
Applications for the contest are due by January 15, 2015. To apply for the contest, teachers must complete an online application form, as well as produce and submit a short video showcasing their engineering project involving Vernier sensors in action.
Each winner will receive $1,000 in cash, $3,000 in Vernier technology, and $1,500 toward expenses to attend the 2015 National Science Teachers’ Association (NSTA) STEM conference in Minneapolis, MN or the 2015 American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) conference in Seattle, WA.
