In the case of the Microscopy Classroom, we can create an interactive environment using digital imaging components such as cameras, apps, and software. This webinar will familiarize you with the various methods you and your students can use to connect to a microscope camera and increase the learning time while enhancing the learning experience. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/digital-classroom-options/ Tue, 09 Jul 2019 22:00:00 +0000 Vince Vaccarelli https://www.leica-microsystems.com/18932 Education Factors to Consider when Selecting Student Microscopes for Schools and Universities Selecting educational microscopes is not an easy task for teachers. The microscopes must stand up to daily use by not always careful hands, be constantly up and running, and fit the budget requirements. Especially with student microscopes, practical aspects play a role: Size, weight, cabling, and design are important in their daily use – and this should be taken into consideration even before the equipment and accessories of the microscopes enter the decision process. If chosen carefully, educational microscopes will open windows to a cosmos of minute detail which delight young minds in schools and universities – and ideally keeps them fascinated enough to make science their profession. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/factors-to-consider-when-selecting-student-microscopes-for-schools-and-universities/ Tue, 22 Nov 2016 09:00:00 +0000 Claudia Müller https://www.leica-microsystems.com/17559 Education Confocal Microscopy EM Sample Preparation Fluorescence Microscopy MyScope for Global Research Training MyScope is an online educational site that provides modules on scanning and transmission electron microscopy, scanning probe and atomic force microscopy, confocal microscopy, X-ray diffraction and microanalysis. These advanced research techniques are important in characterization of materials and understanding biological processes. Developed by technique experts across the Australian Microscopy and Microanalysis Research Facility (AMMRF), quality and usability are assured. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/good-to-know/myscope-for-global-research-training/ Tue, 23 Feb 2016 19:17:00 +0000 Dr. Bronwen Cribb, Dr. Miles Apperley, Dr. Jenny Whiting https://www.leica-microsystems.com/16093 Education Basics in Microscopy Microscopes Put to the Test with Severe Conditions: ISO Standard for Resistance of Optical Instruments to Fungus and Mold Growth Microscopes and other optical instruments can be affected during use by environmental factors. The environment depends on the geographic location and conditions of the place where the instrument is put to use. Usually, microscopes are manufactured in a way to ensure instrument robustness to a variety of conditions. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/microscopes-put-to-the-test-with-severe-conditions-iso-standard-for-resistance-of-optical-instruments-to-fungus-and-mold-growth/ Wed, 05 Aug 2015 07:15:00 +0000 Vince Vaccarelli, PhD James DeRose https://www.leica-microsystems.com/14702 Education Confocal Microscopy Venturing into Uncharted Dimensions – the Fascination of Future Technologies Beyond the confines of the school curriculum, the young talent promotion program Initiative Junge Forscherinnen und Forscher e.V. (Initiative for Young Researchers) from Würzburg, Bavaria, has set itself the task of fostering an enthusiasm for natural sciences and future technologies in young people. Christoph Stolzenberger is one of the IJF’s science presenters. In his Experimentarium and NanoShuttle, he and his team of postgraduates inspire young researchers’ interest in the wonderful world of microstructures. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/venturing-into-uncharted-dimensions-the-fascination-of-future-technologies/ Fri, 24 Apr 2015 12:29:00 +0000 Dr. Christoph Stolzenberger, MA Natalie Hampl https://www.leica-microsystems.com/12777 Neuroscience Video: The Ascent – a Brief History of the Brain This video features a few of the major scientists and findings that have contributed to modern neuroscience: The history of our knowledge of the brain, how technical and conceptual advances led to new insights and the human side of neuroscience through quotations from key individuals on the nature of the brain and consciousness. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/video-the-ascent-a-brief-history-of-the-brain/ Thu, 31 Jul 2014 06:04:00 +0000 https://www.leica-microsystems.com/13555 Education Basics in Microscopy Hunting Down the Hay Bacillus – Educational Microscopes in Biology Teaching Learning begins with perception. Sensory impressions are branded in our mind and become the building blocks of knowledge. The more intensively young people are involved in the lesson and the more experiences they can make themselves, the easier they find it to learn. Hands-on microscopy is therefore a key component of modern science teaching, for example at the Philippinum Grammar School in Weilburg, where students love working with Leica educational microscopes. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/hunting-down-the-hay-bacillus-educational-microscopes-in-biology-teaching/ Tue, 20 May 2014 17:16:00 +0000 MA Natalie Hampl https://www.leica-microsystems.com/13557 Education Basics in Microscopy Stereo Microscopy Bird Park Gives Fascinating Insights into the Variety of Nature The Vogel- und Naturschutz-Tierpark Herborn to the north of Frankfurt may be small, but it’s always a great experience for school classes – and not only because it’s home to more than 300 animals of 80 different species, from South African blue cranes and white storks to meerkats and muntjac deer. Another special highlight for schoolchildren is the opportunity to look through a stereomicroscope and gain fascinating insights into nature. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/bird-park-gives-fascinating-insights-into-the-variety-of-nature/ Mon, 19 May 2014 09:43:00 +0000 M.
