Student-Driven Materials Science

Juniors in Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) at the University of Tennessee take the lead with the Phenom scanning electron microscope (SEM) in the lab. “It’s like giving them the keys to the car,” explains Chris Wetteland who teaches the MSE lab course. “The Phenom gives students the ability to work independently in the lab.”

What Your Students Can Do with 3D Optical Microscopy

Great ideas to share from Wheeling High School! From moisture retention in cupcakes to water purification methods.

USA Science & Engineering Festival

Over 350,000 people of all ages attended the USA Science & Engineering Festival in Washington DC in April. Invited by Dr. Nancy Ruzycki at the University of Florida, Nanoscience Instruments brought the Phenom desktop ProX SEM with EDS for on-site demonstration. Students from the University of Florida explained the science for their samples like foraminifera, commonly referred to as forams:
