Why Explore Microscopy with Us?


Explore the world of microscopy using your family’s microscope.

Whether you have a simple light microscope, a compound microscope, or a digital microscope, you can follow along with the labs and explorations.

Learn how to prepare your specimens for observation

We’ll use several techniques for preparing slides and practice them, so that you can make good observations.

Keep a Scientific Journal

And be a part of an ancient practice that all great scientists have used. Keep notes and design your own data collection. There are no worksheets in the college lab science world.

Go beyond the typical microscope lab offerings

You’ll have the chance to study fiber science and other disciplines of science and learn how to read and right scientific papers and prepare a forma lab report all in an out of the box way.

Approach microscopy in an out of the box way.

You’ll have the structure and the flexibility you need to accomplish a college prep science course with microscopes as the start attraction.

Study Modern Microscopy

Go beyond light microscopes and digital microscopes and learn about the world of advance microscopy used in research today.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! As long as you follow along with the modules and complete three hours a week of the course, you can count this as a credit of science.

No, the course will be built month by month with modules dropping twice a month on the 1st and 15th of each month. Each drop will include two or more modules.

While I do give you the freedom to jump around in the modules, there will be some skill building along the way. Also, if you purchase the course at the start of the 2022-2023 school year, you’ll be waiting for the modules to appear in your account.

You can use any microscope for the course whether it’s a compound microscope or a digital microscope. What you are able to see may vary from what I can see based on the quality of your microscope.
