Vernier Software & Technology Announces Schedule of Spring 2020 Professional Development Workshops
Kicking off this March, Vernier Software & Technology will host 12 hands-on workshops to help science and STEM educators learn how to integrate Vernier data-collection technology into their curriculum. New for our spring 2020 workshops, educators will have the option to attend either an elementary and middle school workshop or a high school and college workshop. All attendees will additionally receive a Go Direct® Temperature Probe that they will use throughout the three-hour workshop.
“During the workshops, educators will learn tips and tricks from a former science educator with years of classroom experience as they test out new age-appropriate, classroom-ready experiments,” said John Wheeler, CEO of Vernier Software & Technology. “Educators of all levels will also have the opportunity to share ideas and learn from their peers as they engage in collaborative professional development.”
The workshops are designed for educators across all disciplines, including physics, chemistry, biology, environmental science, Earth science, and elementary and middle school science. For $35, attendees will receive hands-on training, a light meal, and a Go Direct Temperature Probe. Attendees will also receive downloadable classroom-ready training materials, which include ready-to-use experiments for all areas of science.
