When I first got the opportunity to interview David Carter of Vernier, I honestly wasn’t even entirely sure what ‘Vernier’ was. Early in the interview, he started discussing probes and sensors, and admittedly, I thought perhaps I was in a bit over my head. Here’s the thing, though: when I started this podcast, I wanted to interview people from all professional walks, not just the ones I understood better than others. So, we rolled with it — and in the process, I learned a great deal about technology, teaching, the failures of math and science, how middle schoolers are like college students, and much more. This interview is also a good lesson in staying persistent and following your focus/dreams; Carter eventually emerged as a full-time Vernier employee after much great work for the company.

If you find yourself interested by Vernier products, there’s a ton of YouTube examples related to ’em, including this one:

Thanks for checking out this edition of All In A Day’s Work — and come back next week for Allen Covert.

What’s This All About?

This is a blog and podcast series about the work we all do: the highs, the lows, the effectiveness, the intrigue, the models, the double speak, and the passion. The point is to have discussions with people in those fields about their life and experiences. And hey, sometimes the stories might be funny, too. In the spring of 2013, the new posts started to fade, but you can find them all on iTunes.
