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:
