This is a robust digital microscope with a zoom to 40x original size. The unit is located in the Environmental Gallery. Visitors are welcome to use the Micro-eye to examine a range of natural objects that are on hand, or bring their own specimens to view.
The Micro-Eye is a useful tool in nature workshops and research projects, such as the algae identification workshop with Gerry Kraft in June 2018.
Funds to purchase this item came from the Lord Howe Island Board 2017 Community Grant program. Cindy and Jack Shick sponsored the purchase of the TV monitor.
