An accelerometer offer exclusively for IAAPT members.
I really enjoyed attending and presenting at the IA APT Fall Conference
on November 1, 2008. As I stated in my presentation, SENSR has a
special offer to all IA APT members. We are reducing the price of our
General Series Products, the GP1 and GP2 from $599 to $549. This offer
is good until March 1, 2009. Our commitment to education and developing
products that advance scientific inquiry and literacy runs deep
throughout our organization.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the GP1 and GP2.
