Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: What You Need???
1.any kind of Webcam, I used Labtec
2.something to test the Microscope(I used Eye cream but you can use whatever you want you)
Step 2: STEPS
Step 1. remove all the screws from the webcam
now you should see the circuit board and the lens
step2. remove all the screws on the back of the board that holds the Lens
now you should be able to see the sensitive glass CCD (Charged Coupled Device)
step3. put some Eye Cream on the CCD glass (Just a little bit )and gently rub it with a cotton all so it covers all the surface area.
step4. Plug In the USB Cable to Your Computer and Run the program for the webcam
Step 3: RESULT
now you should see The result
It's pretty nice and now you can record what you see
*CAUTION:Do not put water on the CCD glass Because it might fall into the board and burn it.
Have Fun and Enjoy
