Event description

Description

We are delighted to launch a free project for schools and festivals, where we will supply smartphone microscope kits for children to build, upload their amazing images of the invisible world to our website, and win prizes at the Scottish Closing Ceremony of the International Year of Light.

Come along to the launch and discover the recent, largely untold, revolution that has taken place in the world of biological microscopy. Be enlightened on the untold revolution in microscopy, where the unusual alliance between marine biologists, some fluorescent undersea creatures, physics, chemistry, engineering and mathematics has allowed biologists to see the breath-taking beauty inside working nerve cells.
