A VISIONARY GRANT

The acquisition of a scanning

electron microscope for the center,

made possible by a $110,000 grant

from the George I. Alden Trust,

of Worcester, Mass., will open the

door to a wide variety of advanced

research opportunities for students.

The microscope quickly produces

crisp, noise-free images and

performs many types of analyses

without the limitations of

conventional optical microscopes.

It is another example of Lycoming

College’s commitment to giving

students hands-on experience

with the sophisticated tools and

techniques they will use in their

career, providing them with a

competitive edge in the marketplace

after graduation.

The microscope will also foster

interdisciplinary collaboration among

scientists, faculty and students, and

help them to produce the high level

of research demanded by nationally-

recognized publications.
