On Monday, June 11th, Maspeth High School acquired a Phenom Pure Scanning Electron Microscope - one of only a handful of high schools nationwide to this this impressive technology to its students. The Phenom Pure allows students to examine a sample at a fixed light optical magnification of 20x combined with an electron optical magnification range of 70-30,000X. This technology extensively increases research opportunities and provides practical training for students interested in pursuing STEM careers.
Principal Abdul-Mutakabbir, excited by the newest addition to Maspeth High School's already impressive laboratories, commented, "This is a very exciting day for our school. Students typically do not have access to technology of this magnitude at the high school level, and sometimes even at the college level. At Maspeth High School, we continually strive to provide our students with the most comprehensive laboratory experience possible and this addition helps to align our school among the best programs nationwide."
