Inspire Stem Education


Learning Labs: A new perspective on stem

Until now, if you wanted to see an electron microscope, you had to take a field trip. Today, one can come to you. The Hitachi TM3030, a tabletop electron microscope, can be loaned to your school district, science museum, community college, technical institute or university. After a brief training session, you can use it to inspire and educate your students. We’ve also prepared instructional modules, called Learning Labs, with the University of California-Berkeley and the Georgia Institute of Technology to help you instruct students of all ages, from grade-schoolers to graduate students.

Take a Closer Look at the TM3030

The TM3030 is a true scanning electron microscope with a simple touchscreen interface any instructor can master. Unlike standard microscopes, which use light and lenses, the TM3030 uses a beam of highly energized electrons to examine objects on a very fine scale—up to 30,000x magnification. Such precision is used by scientists in medicine, nanotechnology research, biology, geology, semiconductors, archaeology, aerospace, forensics, entomology, oceanography, and more.
