Learning Labs: A New Perspective On STEM

When students hear the word “exploration,” it usually brings images of faraway places, unconquered lands, or deep space. Hitachi STEM Education, through our learning labs, will help students explore the unknown and magnify their world. Not of space but of something much closer to home, the nano world. As technology advances, nanotechnology has become extremely important and can be found in every aspect of our lives from the food we eat to the clothes we wear. Through our outreach program, best practices learned in classrooms and teaching tools developed in collaboration with universities, museums, and other great institutions will help you bring this world of all things nano into focus and better inspire your students to be the great innovators of tomorrow.


Take A Closer Look At The TM4000


The TM4000 is a true scanning electron microscope with a simple touchscreen interface any instructor can master. Unlike standard microscopes, which use light and lenses, the TM4000 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.
