Virtual Teaching – More Engaging

Enter the digital classroom… AirTeach changes the way you teach. It allows you to digitally share microscopy images from various microscope sources.

Share, discuss, compare

Learning becomes inspiring and interactive as students feel more engaged when sharing, discussing, and comparing their findings with the whole class.

Keeping college or university students engaged in the coursework becomes a lot easier with the Wi-Fi Education Solutions from Leica Microsystems.

Why use Leica educational microscopes in the classroom?

  • They are easy to use – parts are well labeled, components cannot be removed and lost, and few adjustments lead to great results
  • They produce images to enjoy – their optics and cameras deliver good contrast, color, and resolution for a great learning experience
  • They are easy to store – they are small, easy to carry, and have few cables that could tangle
  • They are easy to maintain – they are easy to clean and service, with on-site service when needed
  • They are constructed to last – they stand up to rough handling and varying environmental conditions

And if you would like to digitize your classroom and engage your students via Wi-Fi with tools they even use in their leisure time, we offer wireless classroom solutions.
