Beakman's World: Using Microscopes
01:38 - 07:36
Beakman explains what a microscope does and then dresses up like Zacharias Janssen, the compound microscope inventor. He shows how Leewenhoek basically created a magnifying glass but Janssen expanded upon it by adding the second lense to make a compound microscope. Beakman then shows a variety of slide samples under the microscope and explains it's an important scientific tool.
