iPad Microscopy at work! A child's homeschooling project combining science and technology lessons into one... thanks to iPad and iPad mini

iPad Family's insight:

Here's a neat project where iPad CLEARLY enhanced an educational experience. Our eldest son, now 9 years old, received a microscope for Christmas. Isn't it a parent's wish that their child would embrace an educational gift and utilise it?  Sure is.  He was 'ready' to try out and experiment with his new microscope. Mum and the younger children were at the markets... now is a great time... and check out the results!
