As part of its ongoing commitment to supporting STEM educators and promoting hands-on science learning in classrooms nationwide, Vernier Science Education is launching a new grant program for K–12 and college educators. The 2022 Vernier Science Education Inspiration Grants will award 10 grantees each with $1,000 worth of Vernier technology of their choosing, an annual license for Vernier Graphical Analysis™ Pro, and three hours of virtual professional development to further support their teaching.
“Educators play a pivotal role in inspiring scientific curiosity and fostering STEM literacy in students,” said John Wheeler, CEO of Vernier Science Education. “To support these efforts, 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.”
The grants are open to all K–12 and college educators who are actively teaching at an educational institution in the United States and who have not previously won a grant from Vernier. As part of the application process, educators must describe how they will implement the $1,000 worth of Vernier technology in their classroom or laboratory, their educational institution’s needs, and how the funding will enhance their instruction and engage students.
Grantees will be selected by a panel of fellow educators and Vernier employees.
All applications are due by November 30, 2022. Grantees will be announced December 12, 2022.
