The Project

Project Title Microscopic Wonders
Insects To Study < LEFT BLANK >
Project Description As part of a science unit on plant and animal cells, our Intermediate (4th-6th grade) classes will be learning about the history of the microscope and more recent advances in microscopy. Bugscope provides a unique opportunity for students to be active learners / investigators using highly specialized equipment. I anticipate that the experience will stimulate interest in the sciences and serve as a springboard for student engagement in future studies. Our school serves students with dyslexia and language based learning differences. Our class size is about 12 to allow greater individualization. For this reason I would like to schedule 3 or more sessions if possible.
