invention of the microscope
in the late 1500's allowed us to see into the microscopic world.
Guess What It Is?
microscope makes things look larger. It works by gathering
light from a light source. The light source can be either
a small light bulb or a mirror reflecting light from
an outside source. Light passes through the specimen
and then through
the lenses. Each lens is a piece of glass
that has been shaped in a curve so that the light bends,
magnifying the specimen.
