Remote controlled school presentation microscope

Mark Drobnych, Ukraine Finalist, 13-14

The practical acquaintance of students with cells of animals and plants, protozoa and bacteria is of great importance. This material is remembered for a lifetime and can be the impetus to a further career of scientist or researcher. I have built a school presentation microscope with a remote control and with the help of a LEGO Mindstorm constructor set. My solution has an interesting set of properties, providing a comparative observation and study of living organisms in their natural habitat. Good news: you can clone it if you have LEGO Mindstorm.
