Application Period Open for the 2022 Vernier/NSTA Technology Awards

The call for applications for the 2022 Vernier/NSTA Technology Awards is now open for STEM educators nationwide. Now in its 19th year, this annual awards program from Vernier Software & Technology and the National Science Teaching Association (NSTA) will recognize seven educators for their innovative use of data-collection technology in the classroom. Each winning educator will receive $5,500 in prizes.

“STEM educators are continuously finding new and exciting ways to engage students using data-collection technology,” said John Wheeler, CEO of Vernier Software & Technology. “In celebration of this innovative teaching, we are once again partnering with NSTA to highlight—and award—standout STEM educators for their hands-on, technology-enabled classroom best practices.”

Chosen by a panel of NSTA-appointed experts, the 2022 Vernier/NSTA Technology Award winners will each receive $1,000 in cash, $3,000 in Vernier products, and up to $1,500 toward expenses to attend the NSTA National Conference on Science Education. The deadline for applications is December 15.

Last year’s award winners used data-collection technology to conduct a Biot-Savart law experiment, sample fresh water at turtle communities, investigate the biological aspect of making music, and more.

“Outstanding educators motivate, engage, and help to instill a sense of wonder and empowerment in students through imaginative and innovative science teaching,” said Eric Pyle, president of NSTA. “We are proud to continue our long-standing partnership with Vernier to showcase deserving educators and to celebrate the inspirational and important work that they do in their classrooms every day.”
