Portable Electron Microscope for K-12 Science Lessons

Graduate students at the University of Arkansas bring cutting edge technology to local middle school students and allow them to explore the world of nanoscience in real-time. The MRSEC graduate students with the help of an education outreach program from the FEI, electron microscopy company were able to bring a portable scanning electron microscope (SEM) into the classrooms of local middle schools. The SEM allows the students, with their own hands, to explore the world of the “nano.”
