Documenting the Microscopic World Through Film

Using digital microscopes with built in LCD screen, student researchers will explore the microscopic world, document it through film, and design their own movie that showcases their journey. Researchers will set up and observe the melting of ice, the formation of carbon dioxide from a chemical reaction, hunting for microbes from soil, viewing skin and split ends in hair, and a variety of other cool natural phenomena. These will all be recorded by researchers directly on the microscope. Researchers piece together these clips using iMovie, and design their own creative presentation.
