Microscopy[edit | edit source]

Microscopy as part of an individual curriculum should be introduced with the book (or film) Powers of Ten (which is, by the way, also suitable for an astronomy curriculum).

To motivate research in microscopy the curriculum should motivate pupils to make their own learning diary with photographies of preparations and documentary articles. This way a microscopy curriculum can have connections to biology, chemistry, medicine, scientific writing and photography.
