Red Lion is one of very few schools in the entire nation to have an electron microscope in their possession.
The school has owned the electron microscope for over 10 years thanks to the generosity of Mr. Ken Converse who had five children who attended the school in the district. Converse owns a company that provides electron microscope maintenance throughout the East Coast. Converse offered to give the electron microscope to the high school.
Ms. Heather Fogell, Red Lion high school science teacher, was one of the teachers who was eager to grasp this once in a lifetime opportunity. Fogell is one of the most knowledgeable about the electron microscope and she uses it often for closer examination of everyday products, insect eyes, fibers, and leaves.
