Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), in particular, has given us some striking images over the years to tantalize our visual senses.

Images can be saved in either .jpg or .png file formats.


The only function I was not able to find was a resizing tool. Did I miss it?

Top 10 Unsolved Mysteries of Science | IFLScience

Top 10 Unsolved Mysteries of Science | IFLScience | marked for sharing | Scoop.it
Despite what cable news may tell you, scientists don’t really squabble over if evolution is real (it is) or if the climate is changing faster than can be explained by naturally-occurring phenomena (it is) or if vaccines are regarded as safe and recommended for most children (they are). Sure, there may be fine points within those categories that are debatable, but not to the extent that is commonly described by talking heads on TV. However, that’s not to say that scientists perfectly understand everything about the ways of the Universe.

Free Technology for Teachers: Plickers - The Student Response System for Classrooms That Aren't 1:1

Free Technology for Teachers: Plickers - The Student Response System for Classrooms That Aren't 1:1 | marked for sharing | Scoop.it

Plickers is a neat student response system that I learned about at ISTE 2014. Plickers uses a teacher's iPad or Android tablet in conjunction with a series of QR codes to create a student response system. Students are given a set of QR codes on large index cards. The codes are assigned to students. Each code card can be turned in four orientations. Each orientation provides a different answer. When the teacher is ready to collect data, he or she uses the Plickers mobile app to scan the cards to see a bar graph of responses.
