Goal

The goal for this grant will be to introduce students into the microscopic world around us. . Cell phone adapters to record and see the microscopic world is our main goal. We want students to truly observe the unseen universe around us. 

 

What will be done with my students

Students will complete a minimum of five experiments to understand the microscopic world. First, we will begin with using cell phone attachments in order to see microscopic organisms through student cell phones. Students will explore the learning target SC.912.L.14.3 using existing microscopes and the attachments purchased. This will allow students to film and take pictures of their observations of microscopic organisms at different magnifications. We will then study plants and plant parts to satisfy learning target SC.912.L.14.7. For animals, pond water and bacteria the learning target for SC.912.L.14.2 will be accomplished in a series of lessons. Cell division will also be included in our observations for learning target SC.912.L.16.14. Imagine watching mitosis in live time! All students enrolled in biological sciences will have access to these microscope attachments. We will be making a digital project using the images recorded on their cell phones to create original work by our students. We plan to publish this on our canvas site. 

 

Benefits to my students

Sometimes it is difficult for students to focus and adjust their eyes to look through a microscope. This attachment will allow students to see through their phones, take pictures, upload to documents and even video living organisms that are ordinarily unseen. The attachment also allows the teacher to view instantly what a student is observing from a distance to make sure the student is on target. Students will be able to publish their findings on Canvas and numerous other computer programs.
