For Teachers

We allow school visits by special arrangement. If you are interested in showing your pupils an Electron Microscope Unit in action, please arrange a visit with our technician, Simon Holborn. We can show you working SEM and TEM and also the preparation techniques involved.

View your own sample! If you want to bring a sample to view and take pictures of it away with you, please first consult Simon and he will explain what types of sample to bring and how to prepare them.

Microscopy lecture/demonstrations. If you want a lecture on the role of microscopes in research and/or how they work as part of your school visit to us, please contact Professor Dave Furness. A presentation on microscopy could also be made at your school (contact Dave)!

Request samples or images. If you need tissue sections or specific images for your class, please contact Simon or go through our Image services page.
