@jmwright It's a shop resource with no specific purpose. I rescued it from a lab that was decommissioning it.
We've used it to look at decap'd chips, minerals, bugs, pollen, etc. If you have something you'd like to see under the scope, please suggest it!
@hackerfriendly A rescue SEM, awesome! I once saw a project that allowed telescopes to be shared with high school students remotely. Not saying you should do that with your SEM, but it would be interesting if there was a program to rescue scientific equipment so that students could share it remotely.
Makerdon is a Mastodon instance focused on Makers, Open Source Hardware (OSHW) and STEM/STEAM. Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) is a likely topic as well. If you're interested in making things, allowing others to build on your work, and/or teaching others about making things, you might like this instance.
