Getting it done: was RE: The future of Histotechs

Don, I seem to remember an unwritten rule, namely, he/she who suggests it is
the first elected to DO it! And that is not totally facetious.

Here is a link for helping in schools by doing microscopy, and at the same
time promoting a microscopy-related profession:

I believe Tim hit the nail on the head, and now I feel compelled to throw in
my 2 cents.  Is there any way histology could be promoted at a high school
level?  With all it's hands-on science, I think histology could be a very
interesting part of a high school biology class.  Or it could even be
integrated into some broader college science classes.  Which leads me to
another question: who could/would promote it?  NSH or state societies?
Possibly some pathology product manufacturers? If you build it, will they
come?  Somebody tell me if I'm out of my mind here.
