Microscopy and Photomicrography

  1. 1. Microscopy Workshop The first laboratory activity for the spring course of the RISE Program was very interesting.It was about microscopy. We talked about the evolution of the microscope in detail. Since thefirst microscope was invented until the last and most expensive microscope in existence, there is abig difference in quality and in magnification. In order to learn and practice using the differentmicroscopy types and techniques, we were divided into four groups. Each group was assigned adifferent object to collect and observe through the microscope. My group was assigned poundwater. I learned all the techniques necessary to manipulate liquid samples, but especially how tohave a good view of the microorganisms present in that type of water. I used the light microscopy.We also observed the other groups’ presentations and, by the way, I learned how to use adissecting microscope. In addition, I watched fibers of clothing and paper, using stereomicroscopy. In conclusion, this workshop was full of new and interesting things, and I learned alot.
