Dan Lahr became interested in microbiology after seeing Prof. Grell’s and Prof. Netzel’s beautiful movies about several microbial eukaryotes, many of them on testate amoebae. Initially, he thought using movies would be a great way to introduce young students to the wonderful world of microbial eukaryotes. Additionally, not all schools have the necessary funds to afford a good microscope and trained microscopists, but every school has some system to show movies. Dan and Prof. Sônia Lopes, from IB-USP, have produced three movies from this initiative. These are freely distributed and intended for use in college classrooms. Please note that they are in Portuguese (but the images should speak any language!).
