Microscope Teacher Workshop

Bring the world of Earth and Life Science into FOCUS in your classrooms! During our month-long Teacher Appreciation Celebration this May, Kidzu Children’s Museum invites local educators to ZOOM IN on STEM with this free workshop.Funded in part through the National Science Foundation, UNC Biology Professor Bob Goldstein will lead teachers through a simple DIY workshop to build a high quality, low cost Smartphone/iPad Digital Microscope. Participants will take the microscopes back to the classrooms and use them to show microscopic views of insects, cells, matter or whatever your classroom scientists desire! The workshop serves teachers in our local schools and educators throughout our community, provides opportunity for professional development, as well as encourages idea and resource exchange.
