Title Electron Microscopes
Description I plan to use bugscope so that the students will be able to see the operation of a SEM firsthand. We will have just completed a unit on the nature of the atom in which the students will be learning about the operation of the AFM. Just before the bugscope session we will be studying the nature of light and other electromagnetic waves. We will also be looking at the types of items that are best imaged with a SEM rather than an AFM or a light microscope. Since this is the first time I teaching atoms/electrons through microscopes, I am certainly open to any suggestions you might have.


Where did you hear
about Bugscope?
I visited the bugscope SEM during the Nano-CEMMS workshop this summer.
