Dr. Scott

Academia / Panelist Guest

“Dr. Scott” is the Director of OU’s Microscopy Laboratory, where microscopes go up to a million-and-a-half times magnification (1,500,000×). Other microscopes use electrons, photons, lasers, and even other particles. Especially for SoonerCon, he will bring a scanning electron microscope, and we will be taking lots of images that you can take home. We will also look at light, electricity, and temperatures, and answer a medley of science questions. Can you stump the scientists?!?!?!?
