Introduction to Digital Microscopes

This activity will introduce the use of digital microscopes and teach the students to use them effectively. Will encourage students to see small details in their surroundings. One of my favorite things to do as a child was to wander the back yard with a magnifying lens, finding cool things to look at; especially insects. Speaking to others, I realized this is a common experience among many people, and possibly an important experience for sparking a life-long interest in nature.
