The Microscopic World

The Microscopic World

This week we have an electron microscope on loan in Science. This is part of our enrichment activities in Science to engage students to explore the microscopic world facilitating vibrant, collective learning which supports their science learning, and they apply their ICT capabilities by using technical knowledge and skills to select, use and troubleshoot appropriate digital technologies.

The electron microscope enables us to obtain high resolution images of specimens. It is a powerful tool for showing students about the structures in the microscopic world with highly magnified, fine, detailed images.Beams of electrons are used rather than light waves  in this type of microscope, hence it can be used to analyse structures with a range of up to 0.2 nanometres, which is 1000x more detailed than a normal light microscope.

Science research facilities and other industries commonly use electron microscopes as a part of their production process include aeronautics, automotive, apparel, and pharmaceutical industries. This also exposes our students to tools that are used in different areas of employment and helps bring our science classes to life with beautiful lessons based on real-world science.

Our STEM club students were able to explore plants and insects, focussing on small part and saving the images to use in their upcoming Science competition entries.
