Microsco-Pi: A Novel and Inexpensive Way of Merging Biology and IT
Kent, Harry R.; Bacon, Jonathan P.
School Science Review, v98 n363 p75-82 Dec 2016
It is well known that schools and colleges often have budget limitations that can hamper the effectiveness of practical education. This article looks at how cheap, off-the-shelf components can be used to produce a simple DIY digital microscope, and how this provides novel opportunities to integrate biology, physics, design technology and computer science in a fun and hands-on way.
