Digital Microscope!

Thanks to a generous grant from the Southwest King School Retirees’ Association, we were able to purchase a digital microscope and a set of prepared slides.   This equipment will enable us to recover some of the functionality of a lab in a classroom setting, and will extend our capabilities by allowing us to take digital pictures and movies and to conduct extensive analysis of those images.

Here are our first three images taken with the microscope:

1. Daphnia Head – 40x

2. Onion Root Tip – 40x

3. Onion Root Tip (mitosis!)- 100x
