ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Variable, Inc., the developer of the NODE modular wireless sensor platform, announced a partnership with hands-on science educator Vernier Software & Technology, which will make NODE sensors available to students from elementary school through college. Using over 32 years of experience, Vernier will support NODE in its iPad based software for scientific experimentation.
“The addition of the NODE platform to our line of data-collection technology for science and STEM education brings exciting new potential for students around the world”
“The importance of precise and innovative measuring devices is a core aspect of scientific education,” said George Yu, Ph.D, chief executive officer and founder, Variable, Inc. “As an entrepreneur and engineer who was continually inspired by classroom experiments, it gives me great pride to work with Vernier in empowering students to go further in observing, measuring, and questioning the world around them.”
The first wireless modular sensing platform of its kind, NODE uses a variety of sensing attachments to create data for attributes of the environment including gases in the air, color, humidity, and barometric pressure. The open design of the software that powers NODE has created a slew of applications for the device in research and education. Through Vernier Software & Technology, students now have access to the same sensing technology used by the professionals worldwide.
"The addition of the NODE platform to our line of data-collection technology for science and STEM education brings exciting new potential for students around the world," said David Vernier, co-founder of Vernier Software & Technology and former physics teacher. Educators using tablets and other mobile devices have the flexibility to use these wireless sensors with many of the experiments we have written to support science standards and to let students tap into their own creativity to explore science concepts."
