About Us

We are a team of research scientists and educators who love microscopy and want to share our passion with kids and K-12 educators. If you are used to looking through the eyepieces of a microscope, welcome to the new and much improved world of digital microscopy, which is revolutionizing both scientific research and education. This web site is your gateway to learning about digital microscopy. See these links for more information.

Why microscopy for kids?

"Look ma, no eyepieces" or Why go digital?
