Bugscope: The Second Year of a Sustainable Remote Microscope Project for
K-12 Education Outreach.
Bugscope is a second generation educational project in the World
Wide Laboratory that provides web browser based control of scientific imaging instrumentation
using the Internet. We had previously demonstrated web based remote access to sophisticated
scientific imaging systems several years ago in the Chickscope project. The primary goal of
the Bugscope project is to demonstrate that relatively low cost, sustainable access to an
environmental scanning electron microscope (ESEM) can be made available to K-12 classrooms.
