Calling All Science Educators: Vernier Launches Spring 2013 Data-Collection Workshop Series

Free, hands-on training helps science educators integrate data-collection technology into their science curriculum

BEAVERTON, Ore., Jan. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Starting this February, Vernier Software & Technology will host more than 30 free, hands-on workshops to help science and STEM educators integrate data-collection technology into their science curriculum. During each four-hour workshop, attendees will have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with dozens of hardware and software titles from Vernier's award-winning line of computer and handheld data-acquisition technology. 

"To continue to engage students in hands-on scientific investigation and discovery, it is important that educators are continually learning new – and refreshing their current – teaching techniques so they can get students excited about STEM education," said David Vernier, co-founder of Vernier and a former physics teacher. "The data-collection workshops are great for all science educators – those who are new to data collection, need a refresher course, want to learn new skills from an expert, or just want to evaluate our technology firsthand."

During the workshops, knowledgeable training specialists will provide attendees with guidance as they explore classroom-ready labs they can use in their chemistry, biology, physics, middle school science, physical science, or Earth science classes.

Attendees have the option of earning two (quarter) Graduate Science credit hours through the Portland State University Center for Science Education. Each workshop also includes a light meal and an electronic copy of Vernier's Workshop Training Manual, which includes ready-to-use lab handouts for all science disciplines.
