*IF I DON'T SHOW THEM THIS STUFF, WHO WILL?

Danna Szymanski
$994.40  |  Purchase of Digital Microscope and 4 Biology Microscope Slide Sets


Currently, there is no way to show all students the same image at the same time. With a digital microscope hooked up directly to a computer, the teacher can demonstrate on the SmartBoard what they are looking for on their own microscope at the same level. Academic rigor will improve with this update to the content and the students will experience more of the world in less time by integrating learned skills with microscopic images into other processes of the science classroom.
