IRVINGTON, N.Y. -- It’s a brave new -- if not tiny -- world, as seventh-graders found out in Irvington recently.
Teacher Nicole Arvanites says students in her science class are learning how to use a microscope to examine objects that are too small for the naked eye.
They are also learning how to make proper scientific observations about the images the instrument allows them to see, Arvanites said.
“The students were surprised to see everything was flipped and upside down,” she said. “They will use this understanding to help them when observing microorganisms in our protists (a group made up of protozoa, unicellular algae, and slime molds) unit.”
