The deadline for the 2008 Vernier Software & Technology/NSTA Technology Award has been extended to Nov. 30. Sponsored by Vernier Software & Technology and the National Science Teachers Association, the program awards cash, technology, and travel funds for science teachers who demonstrate innovation in inquiry-based learning activities involving data collection.
This year's competition will award seven prizes to K-12 and post-secondary educators (one elementary, two middle school, three high school, and one post-secondary educator). The prizes, valued at $3,000, include $1,000 cash, $1,000 in Vernier equipment, and $1,000 for travel expenses put toward attending the 2009 NSTA National Conference.
