Gumption Girls are running a creative microscope workshop in partnership with ASCUS Lab at Summerhall, the UK’s largest publicly accessible lab for experimentation in art and science.
During this workshop girls will be guided through the hands-on workshop by ASCUS staff to discover the fascinating world of microscopic life and capture their discoveries on digital media using digital SLR cameras attached to the microscopes.
They will also be exploring the wonderful world of slime mould, a free living single celled organism, plus its applications and uses within the arts, sciences and design.
The ticket price includes a workshop taking place on March 17th at Summerhall.
To celebrate British Science Week we are also running a fun series of workshops exploring the idea that science is all around us and challenging the notion that scientists are all men in white lab coats. Over the four-days girls will get the opportunity to meet female role models and take part in from a wide range of science based hands-on activities, games and speed mentoring. Girls will be encouraged and supported to explore topics that are of personal interest to them and collaborate with others to find out more.
At the end of each workshop each girl will have expanded her understanding of what science really is, discovered personal passions and developed skills in communication, collaboration and leadership. Tickets are available here:
The events are open to all girls aged 8-12 years old.
