Learn & Share: Education

Whether in schools, universities, or in professional education: microscopy courses are a permanent fixture in today’s science curriculum. Modern educational microscopes give students and instructors alike an easy introduction to the microworld: they have an extra rugged design to withstand being used by a lot of different people every day. Thanks to their many user-friendly features there’s no need for complicated advance settings, either. The instructor can concentrate fully on actual teaching and actively involve students in the lesson. Special software for educational microscopes allows an interactive learning environment: microscope images are easily transferred to monitors as visual teaching aids or for active group work. Nowadays, there are even wireless solutions for microscopy lessons which take the learning experience outside the classroom.
