Hokulani Elementary School 18 October 2017

Hokulani’s library was transformed into a microscopy research facility. Fourth graders dressed in their lab coats learned microscopy and histology techniques to help them discover a whole new world around them.

Using magnifying glasses, dissecting and compound microscopes they got to see how different scientific tools are used, and how each are useful in their own way.

They also learned how to prepare their own specimen slide and looked at it under a microscope.

Microscope slides prepared by Hokulani Elementary School scientists.

They discovered that pond water contains living organisms not easily seen with their unaided eye.
