For your first project, can you find 5 different plants, flowers, insects, bugs, or materials that are unique or iconic to your area and take a photo of each one with your MiScope?

To get your microscopes set up, follow these setup instructions. Once you’ve completed the setup process, learn how to use the microscopes, take photos and video, and upload your findings to the blog by watching these instructional videos.
