Saturday Kids’ Activity: Under the Microscope

November 18, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free with admission

What can you find under a microscope? View natural materials with field and high-powered microscopes. See the scales on butterfly wings and the details in dragonfly eyes. Lichen will look like a forest and rocks reveal their mineral crystals. Take some time during this program to make careful drawings which in their abstracted, magnified view become works of art. You can even bring items from home that you have always wanted to see up close. There will be examples of microscope-inspired art to help you in your process, lots of microscopes to use, and tons to material to view.
