Discovering Cells 

"I can only imagine all the stuff I could have found with more time. When I was using all the STEMTools I really felt like a real scientist.

 

   STEMTaught Student - 6th grade

Students discover the microscopic world of cells with their own pond water samples. An in-class video explores the microscopic species found at River Walk Park in California, and in a hot spring in Utah. Students are introduced to basic concepts in microbiology as they view single-celled protozoa, single celled algae called diatoms, and multicellular microscopic organisms with visible body systems made of unique cell types. Students learn and make their own microscopic discoveries in class with Meeka the Microscope.
