Event description

Description

Our world is full of things invisible to the human eye. Have you ever tried to see the micropatterns of everyday objects? Can you imagine how much life is in a drop of puddle water or a single gram of soil?

Five days of tuition and hands on experiments will take you through the stunning world of microbes, microscopes and unseen details. Each day you will gain new insights into microscopy and microbiology and will have a chance to practise yourself with expert guidance from our microbiologist Lab Technician.

If you don’t have 5 consecutive days to devote or if you only want to focus on a particular day’s topic don’t worry. Each day acts as stand alone workshop, you can purchase tickets for as few or as many days as suits you. Please note, day 5 is devoted to reflection and viewing results from the experiments throughout the week therefore day 5 can only be attended if you have been to at least 1 other day. We will say, to get the best out of this experience, we would recommend attending all 5 days.

ASCUS Lab is equipped for several microscopy techniques and houses a variety of microorganisms for you to work with. Delve into and gain understanding of a world of hidden details, patterns and colours. Our course will provide you with the skills and techniques needed to explore diverse samples in microscopic scale from both scientific and creative perspectives. All you need is yourself, a notebook and an open mind. All other materials are provided.
