What you'll learn in this botany class:

It takes some finesse, but we can help you build your confidence and ability with microscopes to view a variety of fungi and plant material. We'll show you how to adjust and calibrate the eyepiece, focus on both thick and thin specimens, and properly light your subject. 

You'll also learn to thinly slice, stain, and make permanent mounts so you can create your very own slide library.
