microscopic world around us. She also offers a variety of art courses—details

'Pippa's Progress' is a new series of monthly video tutorials produced by my colleague Mol Smith. Pippa is a 12 year old enthusiast who presents her interest in microscopy in an engaging way. The Introduction and the second video is available now. We hope the series encourages youngsters to explore the microscopic world around
them. Use of both the stereo and compound microscope are described, with simple slide preparation procedures, outdoor visits to collect freshwater samples etc. Mol has produced cinema length films and each is professionally shot with an HD option available.

Acknowledgements: Many thanks to all the students over the years for sharing their
enthusiasm and skills on such a wonderful variety of topics. Writing
an article for Micscape initially formed part of their course as an assignment,
which was a neat idea originally proposed by Ted Kinsman the course
instructor in 2004 and repeated in most following years. Thanks to Ted
for all the work behind the scenes to make this happen. Also thanks
to Michael Peres, the dept. head (and course instructor 2009) for his introduction
and for maintaining the department's generous collaboration over the years.
