awarded will receive their choice of $1,000 worth of Vernier
technology, an annual license for Vernier Graphical Analysis Pro,

at a U.S. educational institution who have not previously won a grant
from Vernier, and they do not need to be a current Vernier customer
to apply. Applicants must describe how they will implement the
Vernier technology in their classroom or laboratory, their
educational institution’s needs, and how the funding will enhance
their instruction and engage students. Applications are due by Nov.
30, 2022, and grantees will be announced Dec. 12, 2022.
new grant program will recognize innovative educators who are
engaging — or seeking to engage — their students in hands-on,
socially relevant STEM learning through the creative use of our
technology,” said John Wheeler, Vernier CEO.
