The Eye and the Microscope: A comprehensive beginning course into the how and why of using the compound and stereo microscopes. No math, no physics, just some basic concepts about how and why a microscope should be used in a specific way for optimal results. Learn how your visual problems may be affecting proper use of the microscope and what to do about them. Don’t be intimidated by any microscope you see or by who may be using one. A behind the scenes look as to what you need to understand will make you feel comfortable and enable a whole world of excitement to be opened up to you. This two hour experience will consist of an interactive discussion and personal use with both the compound and stereo microscopes. Immediately following, an optional one hour hands-on opportunity to gain more experience and assistance in using these microscopes will be available. Participants are encouraged to bring samples of what they would like to view under the microscopes.
Instructor Ed Forrester has never met an optical instrument he didn't like. His experience, ranging from clinical to surgical instrumentation and the application of lasers with an emphasis in the field of opthalmology, provides the basis for an interesting and effective approach to teaching microscopy. He has held positions ranging from product development to international marketing and and has consulted with start-up companies in the medical field. Due to his interest in photography, astronomy, and most importantly, microscopy he exhibits muse-like characteristics when teaching!
