The Tabletop Electron Microscope (TM3030) was at the ASU Preparatory Academy Elementary school in October 24th to 28th, which gave the school’s 400 students a unique opportunity to view the nanoworld.
ASU Prep’s students were able to experience using the TM3030 in their STEM classes. Kinder-4th grade students used the TM3030, which is capable of seeing details at 30,000 times greater than the human eye, to observe the surface of a penny, while 5th and 6th grade students views a prepared sample of a scorpion. 7th and 8th grade students were able to view DNA bundles that they had extracted from a strawberry the previous week. 7th and 8th grade classes were also able to prepare their own specimens for observation.
