Vernier equipment in the rainforest
Iracambi is thrilled to report that we have received a very generous donation from one of the world’s leading makers of scientific equipment Vernier Software and Technology. Our water monitoring project is now fully equipped with a set of probes, a hand held computer interface, software (complete with license) and a lab book. Just to give you the picture, our level of technology to this point has been more on the order of bamboo measuring sticks and floating oranges down the current to measure stream velocity. Now we’ll be able to introduce the local kids to real science with real scientific equipment – the sort of thing that you’d never see in any of the local schools, nor even in the smaller universities. Thank you, Vernier!
