Science invokes curiosity and innovative thinking to create new experiences. The classroom is a gathering of various levels of thinking and creativity. Imagine how The Focus Camera can empower students to let their own curiosity guide them to enhance thinking and transform the learning experience into an exploration!
I’ve done an Elodea experiment for years, but the first time I taught with the Focus Camera the kids were all, “Wow! That is so cool!” That was really neat. And they all did better on the test because they could remember the pictures on the iPad much more clearly.”Tami Warr, 7th Grade Science Teacher, Jordan Middle School
The new Focus Camera for iPads connects your existing microscope to your iPad. Remove the eyepiece of the microscope and plug in the camera—instantly streaming to the iPad without the need to connect over wi-fi.
“I only see my eyelashes!” and “Is this an air bubble?” are questions of the past. With the large screen of the iPad, and the ability to take pictures, videos, and time-lapse, all of the barriers to self-directed exploration disappear. Ignite your curiosity and let it take charge!
Engage and Empower Your Students
I opened the box, and 10 minutes later I’m ready to send you a video! It was incredibly easy to set up. I’ve used a bunch of these cams, and I have to say yours is top-of-the-line.”John Mead, 6th Grade Life Science & Freshman Biology Teacher, St. Mark’s School of Texas

Once set to explore the microscopic world, students are able to measure, annotate, and label what they see on the iPad putting more control in the hands of the students.
Students no longer have to wait for you to verify what they’re seeing. Now that multiple students at once can see what’s under the microscope, they collaborate and troubleshoot together without needing you to rush over and double check what they see. Did something just swim across the screen? They can take a video and play it back to you when you have the chance to get to their station.
Using the built-in capabilities of your iPad with The Focus Camera during your science classroom allows your students to celebrate their learning experiences every day! The ability to stream what’s under the microscope directly to Apple TV, MAC or PC which can be shared with every student at once not only ignites curiosity but promotes engagement and learning that can continue outside the classroom.
