Our first endeavor was the launch of our program for elementary age students. “It’s a Small World” provides elementary level students the opportunity to view the microscopic world by bringing microscopes to school-sponsored science nights. This program provides a hands-on opportunity for local students to be introduced to model organisms that have been involved in Nobel Prize-winning research. For many students this is their first glance at the microscopic world and the rich and beautiful structure visible only at that level.
