Other rotation stations will include handwriting analysis and hair samples under a regular microscope.

Miscellaneous

Where did you hear about Bugscope? I first heard of Bugscope from a campus instructional technologist with our district 6 years ago. I have used Bugscope each year since (except one year that I was unable to get a session). We love the great 'real world' experience this provides to our students!
