Vernier's Connected Science System® and Graphical Analysis™ for iPad® Named 2014 SIIA CODiE Awards Finalists

Vernier's science and STEM-based technologies recognized by industry-leading award for their software excellence

BEAVERTON, Ore., April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Vernier Software & Technology was recognized as a finalist in the 2014 SIIA CODiE Awards for both its Connected Science System® and Graphical Analysis™ for iPad® app. The industry-leading awards program recognized the technologies for their software excellence in the Best Science/Heath Instructional Solution and Best Educational App for a Mobile Device category, respectively.

In its 29th year, the SIIA CODiE Awards are the premier awards for recognizing excellence in the software and information industries. The awards have more than 75 categories and are organized by industry, focusing on content, education, and software. The awards are the industry's only peer-reviewed program as educators and administrators conduct the first-round review of all education nominees and then select the finalists in the products' respective categories. This year's program features 31 education categories, several of which are new or updated to reflect the latest industry trends and business models.

"Providing robust technologies to enhance the teaching and learning process, as well as to further scientific discovery for students, is at the heart of all we do," said David Vernier, co-founder of Vernier and a former physics teacher. "The recognition from the CODiE Awards for both the Connected Science System and Graphical Analysis for iPad app is a great honor that further reinforces the impact these technologies can have in engaging students in STEM education."

The Connected Science System is a networked collection of technology – encompassing Graphical Analysis for iPad, Vernier Data Share web app, and LabQuest Viewer software – that expands the ability to use data collected with Vernier's LabQuest 2 data-collection device to support hands-on, collaborative learning. With the Connected Science System and the built-in wireless connectivity of the LabQuest 2, STEM educators and students have new ways to share and analyze data using mobile devices.

The Graphical Analysis for iPad app allows students and teachers with iPads to wirelessly collect sensor data in real time from the LabQuest 2 and then intuitively analyze, annotate, and save that data on the iPad using the app's multi-touch and advanced networking and exporting capabilities. The app is a direct descendant of a program first written for Apple II computers by Vernier in 1982.

Winners of the 2014 SIIA CODiE Awards will be announced during a special awards dinner at the nation's leading education technology conference, the Education Industry Summit, in San Francisco on May 13, 2014.
