The Project

Project Title BugScope
Insects To Study Arthropods
Project Description We have been studying arthropods and my four Life Science classes have 4 specimens that they would like to examine the mouthparts on. I was in the NANO-Cemms program last summer and so I am familiar with the program and my students were excited about the possibility of seeing some parts on the nano-scale. Our current unit on classification in ending but at the time requested above we should be entering our unit on arthropods. I have a 54" SMART Board white screen and projector I use in my room that runs off the computer on my desk. There is a wireless slate that can be used with this. We also have 7 wireless laptops for student use.
