Microscopes for Primary Schools

This project is an initiative of the Chief Scientist of Western Australia, Professor Lyn Beazley, and the Rotary Club of Freshwater Bay through which Rotary Clubs are invited to donate a set of microscopes complete with  batteries, to primary school(s) in their area. 
 
The aim of the project is to encourage the primary school children of today to aspire to be the scientists of tomorrow.
 
RMMP is enthusiastically supported by by the Science Teacers Association of Western Australia (STAWA) and the Water Corporation (Water Corp). Together they have produced a booklet which includes teacher background notes and focuses on a variety of activities including:
  • Use of the microscopes
  • How plants adapt to water supply
  • Plant structure
  • Soil composition 
If your Club decides to donate, the quantity of microscopes and batteries supplied is entirely up to the Club. However in most cases the ideal quantity is thirty (30) microscopes and sixty (60) Eveready AA batteries. But whatever the Club donates will be of great benefit to the primary school which receives it.
