Hands-on Biology Lab for the Holidays!

An interactive hands-on workshop where children get look at all sorts of things up close!
The kids rotate in pairs or threes around the 10 digital microscopes to observe;

  • your student's own hair and skin
  • leaves, flowers, stems, algae, seaweed
  • feathers, scales
  • coca cola, coffee and tea stains
  • nylon, polyester, acrylic, silk, foam and wool
  • insect legs, abdomen and wings
  • fungus, beans, rice
  • microfilm, newspaper and magazine clipping + much more!

We discuss why the observed structures are present with the students sketching and labeling their specimens. Often the excitement builds through the workshop as the students realise there is much more than meets the eye. Even seemingly mundane objects having amazing qualities under the microscope!

This engaging workshop offers children a chance to be introduced to microscopes in a fun atmosphere.
