Vernier Software & Technology has announced its 2015 Engineering Contest, which recognizes 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. To apply, 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. Teachers will be judged on innovation, engineering objectives, and the ease with which others can replicate the project. Middle school and high school applicants will specifically need to explain how the project addresses the engineering practices called for in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The winners will be announced on March 5th on the Vernier Web site and Facebook page.
DEADLINE: January 15th
