Identifying Your Swift Microscope

How do you identify your Swift microscope, in case, you need to order parts or service for it? On some of the older Swift scopes, the model may be printed on the head of the microscope, but in most cases, you will find the model on the base plate on the bottom of the scope. In many cases, you will find bulb replacement information there also. If you can't find this information, take a digital picture of it, and send it to your Swift service dealer for assistance.

What is S.T.E.M?

There is a lot of talk and buzz around the term S.T.E.M., but what is it? Simply stated, S.T.E.M. is an acronym that stand for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. S.T.E.M. education is an interdisciplinary approach to learning where academics are paired with real-world lessons as students apply science, technology, engineering and mathematics in contexts that make connections between lessons learned in the classroom setting to work and community applications. It takes learning and theory to the next level, in which students do not simply learn concepts but demonstrate and apply this learning to application. (Tsupros, 2009) S.T.E.M. programs turn a typical classroom into one that is dynamic, real, and driven by problem-solving, discovery, and investigative learning.
