Biology Science Fair Project Ideas | Biology Experiments for School Students
What you'll be able to see through a students microscopes depends on the magnification the microscope permits. Another important aspect of students microscopes is their lighting. Some student lab microscopes use tungsten lighting - but a lot of more recent ones have begun to use LED lighting instead. Which kind of lighting provides better opportunities for observation? Exploring this question can lead to a fruitful science fair project. You can get one of each kind of microscope - or you can examine multiple microscopes of each kind at your local public school. Examine the same slides under each microscope. Which kind of microscope enables you to observe more details? What are the strengths and weaknesses of each kind?
