Professor Roger Wepf and the CMM team have been integral in enabling us to move the program outside of South Australia. Beginning with a trial late in 2018, then moving on to hire Sandrine Roy in a sponsored position to support the growth and establishment of the inspireSTEM education program in Brisbane.
Our thanks to Dr Bronwen Cribb for her hours (and hours) of work in colouring our amazing centipede image on the front page, it takes quite some time to really produce something like this.
Thank you also to Dr Kim Sewell and Professor Mike Bennett from The University of Queensland for the use of their shark skin image on the front page.
Adelaide Microscopy is a centrally located facility offering a broad range of the most technologically advanced instrumentation for microscopy and microanalysis to universities, research institutions and industry.
Our expert staff – among the best in their field – have many years of accumulated knowledge and experience in biological and materials sciences microscopy and understand the need for accurate analysis, providing expert advice on
suitable techniques and applications in order to solve the most demanding of problems.
Core resources for transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and EM sample preparation are now available to researchers through the Bioimaging Platform. Advanced TEM techniques available include tomography, scanning TEM (STEM) and cryo-TEM.

Research with Waikato
The University of Waikato is keen to develop new research partnerships with businesses, other research organisations and government. We have internationally recognised research capabilities and facilities across numerous disciplines, and strive to deliver pioneering, transferable research and cutting-edge new knowledge.
Paihau—Robinson Research Institute at Victoria University of Wellington was formed in January 2014.
The team of 25 scientists, engineers and students was previously the superconductivity and energy group at Callaghan Innovation and Industrial Research Ltd (IRL). IRL was formed when the Department of Science and Industrial Research (DSIR) was dissolved in 1992.
The Institute is named to honour the late Bill Robinson who was a physicist, seismic engineer and director of the Physics and Engineering Laboratory at DSIR. His support of research into superconductivity was instrumental in establishing the team that now bears his name.
Olympus Australia are supporting us with Stereo Microscopes to go with each of the SEM “kits” visiting schools.
