Microscopes are specialized tools that use lenses to focus energy onto objects in order to magnify them. Zoom into how microscopes work with downloadable coloring pages (including “connect the energy dots”), go on microscope tours with scientists from The Rockefeller University and BioBus, and more!

Microscope Coloring Pages
Spend some time tracing the path of illumination energy used by microscopes to magnify and focus tiny objects! These images were made by artist Jerlyn O’Donnell, aka the Design Lady.
LAB Backstage with the BioBus
RockEDU has teamed up with the amazing science education organization BioBus and 3rd graders from Massachusetts to demonstrate how a light microscope can help us see the critters in leaves that we find on the floor.
