Hidden Worlds- Up Close and Personal

A video microscope to bring the microscopic world alive for my students.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Dear Donor, I am an 11th grade advanced Biology Teacher at City Arts and Technology High school in the Ingleside district of San Francisco. My school is a start up school and does not have many basic lab supplies. In fact I only have one microscope available for all my students to use. During the 2006-2007 school year my class did dozens of labs ranging from testing alcohol's affect on fruit flies to genetically modifying bacteria with a jellyfish gene that caused the bacteria to glow green when exposed to UV light. Despite these exciting labs the one area I was not able to give my students exposure to seeing organisms under a microscope since I do not have the microscopes available. Having a videoflex scope would allow me to project an image under my microscope to the whole class thus accomplishing a major goal of mine. I remember so fondly my labs in high school and college where I was able to see the invisible and I look forward to sharing similar experiences with my students. I thank you for your time and consideration and sincerely hope you can help make my classroom more effective by taking a single microscope and turning it into a class wide tool for learning.
