Awooo.

Null Sector SEM Thanks to everyone who came to look at the SEM. It's part of an educational project called the Hitachi Inspire STEM education programme. We have two SEMs which we loan to schools for a term at a time (4-6 weeks). The project is a collaboration between the NHM, The Royal Microscopical Society, Oxford Instruments and The Institute for Research In Schools. Over the past 2 years over 6500 children from more than 50 schools have used the programme and have delivered more than 800 individual research projects using the SEMs. We've also trained over 100 teachers in electron microscopy. If you know anyone who might want the SEM at their school, please contact me at Alex Ball and I'd be happy to let them know more about the programme and how it works.
