Share, discuss, compare

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

Must-haves: camera and software

The addition of a camera such as the Leica EC4 or the wireless Leica ICC50 W and software such as the Leica LAS EZ or Leica Acquire turns a microscopes into an imaging system.

Using camera and software, students can work with their images beyond the microscope:

  • Extracted images from the microscope
  • Make images available for analysis and measurements, documentation for reports
  • Share images

Essentially, working with a microscope equipped with camera and software is fun for students, because they can use and share their own images.

Last, but not least, fun is a great assistant to teachers!

Earth Sciences Education

In your area of expertise, fields of study can be as specific as micropaleontology, hydrogeology, sedimentology, or environmental science. Microscopy tasks can become highly specific as well, using polarization contrast for reflectivity studies, for example. Dedicated optics and software help your students on their way.

Material Sciences Education

Your lessons help students characterize and analyze materials for their properties, purity, and possible use in engineering, using a variety of optics, contrasting methods such as brightfield, polarized light, or oblique illumination, and software in the process.

Life Sciences Education

To get the most out of their observations, they should be flexible: for example by changing magnifications and optics, or using different contrasting methods such as phase contrast and darkfield.  Working with software to document, annotate, and share images increases their learning experience even further.

Forensic Science Education

As an expert on forensics, you teach students to develop a good understanding of what different illumination and contrasting methods will reveal as valid evidence and how software helps them to make their reporting easier.
