The NMNH has an early enrichment center for our smaller scientists. Once or twice a year the SEM Lab opens it's doors to the kindergarten level youngsters and we sit down and use the SEM to examine objects they are interested in. Food is always a subject of interest to them. See if you can figure out what a recent class brought in to examine on the SEM.
