This year, students have been using virtual simulations of microscopes to look at cells. While these are helpful and convenient, especially in a technology-heavy world, they are not always accurate or engaging. These microscopes will provide hands-on, authentic experience for observing cells, as well as skills that will be utilized in high school and beyond. Students will be able to figure out how a microscope works, observe actual slides of real cells, and use them to explore different aspects such as organelles and reproduction. I am starting off with a class set so students can work collaboratively during activities like stations. By setting up one slide per microscope, students can rotate around the room to observe. Also, students that can actually volunteer or be selected to set up the slides for everyone. I am confident that having real microscopes in the room will make the concept of cells more tangible and relevant to my students, and I appreciate your generosity in supporting this project!
