CHS Stereomicroscope

Help me give my students a stereomicroscope to view 3D Specimens in the classroom.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Students in my classroom love to do hands-on projects, and it enhances their ability to learn. I run an inquiry-based Science Class in which the students love to participate and are able to see the real-life connections.

Eighty percent of my students are two grade levels below their age-appropriate peers and require modifications and project-based activities to better understand the curriculum.

My students do not make school a priority, and doing projects and using technology sparks the interest of the students and enhances their overall education.

My Project

Students can view 3-D images of a broad variety of specimens thanks to this zoom stereomicroscope's wide magnification range (7-45x). They will be able to collect specimens as well as look at some we already have in the classroom. The students will be able to see what they have been learning about in the classroom with their naked eye.

It is perfect for viewing rocks, fossils, insects, plants, larger protozoa, electronics, and many other Biological items.

The rheostat-controlled top and bottom LED illumination system provides bright, energy-efficient light that will not damage heat-sensitive specimens. So they will be able to look at the specimens and use this microscope for years to come.
