A multidisciplinary microscopy centre, housing a scanning electron microscope and advanced video light microscopy, was opened at Sevenoaks (Senior Independent) School, Kent, last November. Other schools from prep to secondary are welcome to visit or attend an instruction class and will be able to access the images it generates on the website currently being prepared. The project is funded by BP.
