Loaning high-powered microscopes to schools in the U.S. ignites interest in science for students and teachers

There has been ongoing concern that American students are not receiving adequate education in math and the sciences. The number of students pursuing science-related careers is also decreasing at the same time that job opportunities in science-related and high technology fields are increasing. Experts fear we will not be able to meet our future workforce needs. By loaning its TM3000 microscope to schools and universities around the country, Hitachi is hoping to help get students and teachers excited about science.
