Ottawa-based Lumenera Corp., manufacturer of high performance digital cameras and custom imaging solutions, has donated 48 of its high performance research-grade microscopy cameras to be used as a teaching tool in science classrooms across the city of Ottawa.
Lumenera donated a camera to every high school in the Ottawa area, within the Ottawa Carleton District School Board (OCDSB), Ottawa Catholic School Board (OCSB), and the French Public School Board of Eastern Ontario (CEPEO). Lumenera worked with science programs and curriculum advisors from each of the school boards to facilitate the delivery and installation of the cameras, while hosting training sessions for the teachers to become familiar with the cameras and imaging software.
The cameras will create a collaborative learning environment, facilitating discussions between the students and their teachers as they study specimens at the same time on a monitor or projector, rather than taking turns looking down the eye piece of a microscope. The camera will enable students to capture images of their scientific experiments and investigations utilizing a high-end imaging solution that is found in post-secondary institutions and professional research laboratories worldwide.
