Description

Beyond the Naked Eye
Microscopy Course for Beginners 2020
6.30 pm – 9.00 pm,
Wednesdays, 14th Oct - 4th Nov (4-week block of workshops)

Where: ASCUS Lab

Venture into the unseen world of microscopy, explore different samples and staining techniques to reveal the invisible through the medium of light. Experience new ways of creating striking images and gain the skills and techniques necessary to see colours and details usually invisible to the naked eye?

ASCUS Lab is equipped with a wide range of microscopes that have a variety of microscopy techniques, from basic brightfield using simple white light to darkfield and polarised light techniques that alter the light path.

This workshop will cover every stage, from sample collection and preparation, taking you through the basic physics of how microscopes work along with an introduction to the different techniques of light microscopy. Explore and gain an understanding of how different samples interact with light and different stains and gain confidence in using a range of microscopes for your own creative exploration into microscopic image-making.

Try out making various samples from the world around you – from single-celled to multi-celled organisms like you, to plants, dust and everything in between. The course will explore the benefits of using different samples for making permanent slides, along with the benefits of using different contrast-enhancing techniques for both scientific and creative purposes.

Please bring along a notebook, all other materials are provided
