1:00-3:00 p.m.: The Digital Microscope
All Grades
AIMS Technology Tool for all grade levels
Limited to 24 participants – $15 fee

Join us for a two-hour, inquiry-based digital microscopy workshop and see how to integrate technology into any classroom or science lab. In this hands-on workshop you will use the digital microscope, a simple-to-use yet sophisticated instrument to create .JPGs for digital notebooks, take short videos to incorporate into your presentations and more. Explore multiple levels of digital microscope technology and learn how to incorporate it into your existing science program to motivate and meet the needs of all learners. Participants will use the elementary level Motic DigiScope and the new Boreal2 Compound Microscope. Extend the senses and observe the finer details of life, earth and physical science. View, capture, create!
