The new compound microscopes have arrived! Today during science they were put to the test while looking at pond water and hair. Before putting all of these things under the microscope we had to learn about the different parts of it and how they worked. Thanks to the USB port in the eye pieces we could hook the microscopes up to computers and take pictures on them. Finding the different colors and thicknesses of the hair had some people rather surprised. While examining the pond water, we looked for microbes and after finding many dead plants and clumps of dirt, the microbes wiggled into sight and some amazing pictures were taken. This mini grant was funded by Chevron through donorschoose.org.
