Take a closer look! Using microscopes as their camera and objects from natural history collections as their subject, families will create their own microphotographs, experimenting with lighting and composition techniques. Microscopy educators will be on hand to teach families how to use microscopes, and families can complete challenges to practice their microscopy skills.
