I am doing a science project on whats in a glass of water.  I want to get 
samples from a creek, river, lake, city water faucet, and well water fauct. 
I want to view each sample in a microscope to see what lives in them.  My 
mom was going to get me the Intel QX-3 microscope for my birthday.  It 
hooks to the computer and magnifies things 200 times.  You can print a copy 
of what you see.  Is 200 times magnification enough to show me what lives 
in a small amount of water?
