Dismantle USB webcams and turn them into digital microscopes. All it takes is a screwdriver, some glue and a couple of hours - after which you'll be examining water flies and water bears (tardigrades) close-up.
Ticket price includes all kit needed for everyone to make a working microscope to take home. Please bring a computer – or at least one to share between your group.
When & Where
Manchester Digital Laboratory (MadLab) is a grassroots innovation organisation, based in Manchester UK. Our primary areas of focus are science and technology; arts and culture.
We support a diverse range of communities and activities – from monthly meetups and courses through to public experimentation with new & emerging technologies, and collaborating with others to deliver new, interesting and exciting projects.
Our main base of operations is a three-storey, 3000 square foot Industrial Revolution-era former weavers’ cottage centrally located in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. We are less than ten minutes walk from Manchester Piccadilly and Manchester Victoria train stations, and just two minutes walk from the Arndale Shopping Centre.
