Microscopic
Life

Join Octopus Learning for 8 weeks of advanced science learning! 



This program is the perfect follow up to our "World Under a Microscope" classes from last session, or a great place to start for students with no microscopy experience! 


Using a microscope with up to 2000X magnification, capable of taking pictures and videos and of being hooked up to our giant monitor, students will be thrilled to investigate  the amazing world of microscopic life! A portion of each class will be spent outdoors, collecting samples for study and participants will learn appropriate slide mounting techniques for each type of specimen.
