Vernier Launches $1,000 Grant Program to Promote STEM Literacy

A new grant program from Vernier Science Education will provide 10 K–12 or college educators funds this year to promote STEM literacy. Those awarded will receive their choice of $1,000 worth of Vernier technology, an annual license for Vernier Graphical Analysis Pro, and three hours of virtual professional development.

The grants are open to all K–12 and college educators actively teaching 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.

“This 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.
