The Project

Project Title Virtual Electron Microscopy
Insects To Study To be determined.
Project Description Students will be able to interact virually with an electron microscope. This will enhance their knowledge of microscopy. Students do not have the potential for face-to-face contact with an electron microsope, so this virtual exerience will be a meaningful complement to in-class activities. This virtual experience aligns with North Carolina's Standard Course of Study (NCSCOS) for Biology. Specifically, the virtual experience aligns with NCSCOS for Biology's Goal 1: The learner will develop abilities necessary to do and understand scientific inquiry.
