At PNNL, we are committed to fostering the next generation of scientists and engineers. Our researchers collaborate with teachers in the classroom to build students’ critical thinking skills, cultivate their curiosity, give them the confidence to take intellectual risks, and encourage them to fearlessly explore their ideas. Shown here are the lepidote scales that impart Russian Olive leaf surfaces with a silvery sheen. Images like these are used as teaching tools to help young scientists visualize the vocabulary used to describe our natural world. Robin Durham captured this image using a Scanning Electron Microscope.
