The Project

Project Title Measuring Small
Insects To Study < LEFT BLANK >
Project Description As part of a unit on particle physics, students experience how scientists see and measure "small". We review basic microscopy from 6th and 7th grades, talk about scanning electron microscopes and eventually work our way to particle accelerators. I would like students to actually see how SEMs work and to have the opportunity to interact with researchers and scientists who use the equipment.
