The Project

Project Title Comparative anatomy
Insects To Study Will send
Project Description We're studying body systems and evolutionary history of multiple animal taxa. Students will already have learned about vertebrate body systems through dissection and bookwork; I'm hoping that bugscope images can provide a compelling way of comparing and contrasting invertebrate structures. We use light microscopes extensively in the class; I provide students with reaading on how electron microscopes work prior to Bugscope sessions.

Miscellaneous

Where did you hear about Bugscope? Internet search; have had two very positive experiences with it.
