The Project

Project Title SEM Microscopy
Insects To Study any
Project Description Nano-CEMMS is hosting 10 students for an upward bound camp this summer. We are doing 12 sessions on nanotechnology, and thought that a session on microscopy would fit well and be exciting to students. I would be able to bring these students to Beckman to interact with the Bugscope operators in person and see the microscope. I would not need to do this over the web.

Miscellaneous

Where did you hear about Bugscope? I have used Bugscope before to image Bacteria for a research project.
