Vernier Software & Technology is offering 20 free hands-on workshops this fall to help science educators incorporate data-collection technology into their curriculum. Held at locations nationwide, each four-hour workshop will provide educators of all levels with the opportunity to explore classroom-ready experiments and connect with fellow educators, while testing out Vernier Software & Technology’s line of data-collection technology. All attendees will receive a Go Direct Temperature Probe, along with experiment ideas, that they can use in their own classrooms.  

During the workshops, educators will work with a Vernier training specialist to learn skills and best practices for data-collection in physics, chemistry, biology, environmental science, Earth science, and coding, as well as middle school science to help meet the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). After a brief overview of the technology, educators will explore specialized activities based on their grade level and area of interest. 

In addition to a Go Direct Temperature, each attendee will receive a light meal and a downloadable Workshop Training Manual, which includes ready-to-use experiment handouts for all science disciplines. Interested educators can select dates from the schedule below.
