10 AM at the Studio
Did you ever look at close-up images of a spider’s face, or wonder what a tiny deer tick really looks like? Do you know that colored sugar, when viewed through a stereo-microscope, looks like emeralds, rubies and diamonds? That those tiny weed flowers that many ignore can look as magnificent as roses and orchids?
Naturalists and photographers Barbara and Peter Rzasa will lead a program suited for kids ages 8 -12 that allow them to discover what items look like when enlarged at the magnification of a stereo-microscope. With its two eyepieces it enables three-dimensional viewing of tiny objects at 20 and 40 power. Participants will be looking at a variety of specimens through the lens of the microscope discovering the wonder they hold close up.
Participants are welcome to bring their own small objects that they may want to view under the microscope. If the weather is suitable, a short walk outdoors to collect additional specimens will also take place.
Parents are invited and encouraged to attend with their kids to make the viewing a family activity.
