Dr. Peter Ower, WJHS 7th grade science teacher was granted funding for 24 Moticams, which are special cameras that mount on the lab microscopes already in use at WJHS.
With these cameras, students can take photos of their biology studies and share this work with their teachers and other students. This replaces the outdated practice of students hand drawing what they view in the microscopes or attempting to photograph their findings with iPads. Moticams have streamlined the workflow during biology labs, and encourage collaboration between lab groups and science classes.
Dr. Ower says this new method of examining cells is “very engaging for the students!” For greater insight into the Moticams’ success, click here.
