This week science club have been developing out microscope skills. We have learned the names of different parts of the microscope and how to focus on a sample. We tested out these skills on some pre-prepared slides including kidney, spinal chord and blood wells. We then prepared our own red onion samples by peeling off very thin layers of onion using tweezers and mounting them on slides, we even stained the colourless samples with iodine solution! The images we managed to focus on were amazing we could see fantastic clear blocks of cells and in some cases, we could see the nucleus of cells!
