The Project

Project Title Microscopy and Scale
Insects To Study any we find
Project Description As part of our unit on cells, students do extensive work with light microscopes, and we discuss scale/measurement. We would use the electron microscope to compare how magnification changes the view of an object. We will then tie this in with art to have students create scaled pictures from the images we collect during our session.
