    Posted by West Linn-Wilsonville on 8/13/2019 3:00:00 PM

    Students observe a sample coating machine at the Aug. 6 conference.

    On Aug 5-6, 10 West Linn and Wilsonville high school students received the opportunity to partner with 10 Portland State University undergraduate students as part of the Microscopy Society of America Annual Microscopy and Microanalysis national meeting. Sponsored by the conference Education Committee, student scientists worked alongside WLWV International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) Program Coordinators Dr. Jennifer Wells and Danielle Grenier, as well as PSU’s Dr. Erik Sanchez to pilot a program that will introduce students to the world of professional conferences and advanced microscopy and digital imaging.

    On Aug. 4, students engaged in a pre-conference electron microscopy workshop in the Portland State University Nano Development Laboratory to learn key concepts and technical language. Nanoscale microscopy is the technical field that uses electron microscopes capable of magnifications up to 10 million times in comparison to light microscopes that are limited to below 200 times magnification.

    On Aug. 5 and 6, students attended and participated in the first two days of the Microscopy Society of America National Microscopy and Microanalysis Conference at the Oregon Convention Center. Students participated in the Plenary Session and visit the Exhibit and Vendor booths.

    Each West Linn-Wilsonville student was paired with a PSU undergraduate student, allowing for collaboration and learning throughout the conference. West Linn-Wilsonville students then presented their International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) project poster to conference attendees. During the two-day conference, students learned about the latest in Microscopy and Microanalysis from some of the field’s top scientists and researchers.
