In the last decade, microscopy has been successfully employed by a number of research groups as a means of instilling enthusiasm for science and technology into students of all ages, especially school children . Remote microscopy (or telemicroscopy) and virtual microscopy (in the form of software simulators) continue to play important roles in these efforts and also in the teaching and training of new microscopists . Such work and associated electronic teaching resources have become prominent features of conferences such as Microscopy & Microanalysis.
