On Saturday, February 25, 2017, we carried out an event for children using desk model tabletop electron microscope "TM3030" in National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology. This event is one of the programs which microscope society Kanto Branch, Japan planned. Hitachi High-Tech Corp. cooperated and gave a demonstration to watch a sample in "TM3030".
22 citizens including children of the third grader to seventh grader participated in this event.

The participant watched difference between crystals of salt and sugar, butterfly's compound eye, and diatom which looks like round slices fruits. When we use electron microscope to expand the thing which is usually in surroundings, these seem totally different.
