Students Take a Closer Look with the Aid of a Virtual Microscope

One of the exciting aspects of the District's Chromebook initiative is the avenues for learning it opens for students. Students in Lara Norman's class completed a virtual lab with the help of their Chromebooks. The students used a virtual microscope to view bacterial, onion, elodea, and cheek cells. Students work with the microscope just as they would normally adjusting the stage height and focusing the lenses, they simply do it on the Chromebooks rather than sitting at the actual microscope.
