Martin and David set up two tabletop Hitachi systems with EDS at this World Science Festival event run by people from the University of Queensland Centre for Microscopy and Microanalysis. Thousands of people (mostly parents and kids) attended this free event over two days. The Hitachi tabletop instruments were flat out all the time no doubt inspiring some young microscopists. Martin demonstrated images of native bees with pollen on the bee’s microscopic leg hairs, beetles, mosquitos, fool’s gold and meteorite samples.
