Class Content

The microscope will enable the students to observe a whole new world that is invisible to the naked eye. The class will teach the students about the different kinds of lenses and they are used in our daily life. The process of building the microscope involves different kinds of material such as: Plastic, Wood and Metal.


Learning Outcome
What is acrylic?
> Material Properties:  It’s a type of plastic sometimes called acrylic glass. It’s often used in sheet form as a lightweight or shatter-resistant alternative to glass.
How do lenses work and what are they used for?
> Lens: is a transparent piece of glass or plastic with at least one curved surface. A lens works by refraction: It bends light rays as they pass through it so they change direction.
