WA Magnifying Microscopes Project
Primary school students in Broome and Derby can take a closer look at the world around them, thanks to a joint initiative by the Rotary Club of Broome and the Water Corporation. Broome Rotary has donated 30 microscopes to each of Broome’s four primary schools and to Derby Primary so students can study plant structure and soil composition and learn how plants adapt to available water supplies.
