Go Direct Weather System provides a versatile and affordable way for educators to engage students

Vernier recently launched the new Go Direct® Weather System to engage students in hands-on data collection as they learn important environmental science concepts. This affordable wireless sensor can be used in the classroom or out in the field to help middle school, high school, and college-level students investigate and analyze a variety of environmental factors.

“This new sensor for environmental science provides an affordable way for STEM educators to engage their students in data collection as they explore the science of natural phenomena,” said John Wheeler, CEO of Vernier Software & Technology. “The Go Direct Weather System is notable because students can collect and analyze multiple types of environmental data using just one compact system.”

The two-part Go Direct Weather System consists of the Go Direct Weather sensor and the Go Direct Weather Vane. The handheld weather sensor is used to collect data around ambient temperature, humidity, wind speed, wind

Nvidia Teams with VMware to Make Mellanox’s Chips More Versatile

Five months after closing its $7 billion purchase of networking interconnect and chip developer Mellanox Technologies, Nvidia  (NVDA) – Get Report is teaming with VMware  (VMW) – Get Report to expand the capabilities of Mellanox’s silicon.

On Tuesday — the start of VMware’s annual VMworld conference — Nvidia and VMware announced a pair of partnerships.

One of the partnerships involves the Nvidia GPU Cloud (NGC), a set of software tools and pre-trained deep learning models meant to help developers quickly get AI projects relying on Nvidia GPUs up and running. The other involves Mellanox’s SmartNICs, networking cards that (with the help of Mellanox’s BlueField data processing units, or DPUs) can offload networking, security and storage processing from a server’s CPUs.

The second partnership, arguably the more important of the two, will allow many of the tasks handled by VMware’s core Cloud Foundation platform — it covers
