Josh asks me if I want to cut plexiglas
When we got there, it was a cool place - there was an IR sensor when you came in that sensed when someone came in and made a "ding" sound. There were lots of cool instruments. We cut the plexiglas with a band saw - it slightly melted the edges, making them crusty, which you could pull of the excess - and didn't take much pressure to cut. We had two pieces. Josh cut one and then he let me cut one.
This was fun! These plastics will go above the microscope. I felt proud - for the first time, I contributed something to our microscopes! I've included pictures below.
