Feed your curiosity and explore the world up close. Join us for activities with magnifying glasses and microscopes. We will go on a nature scavenger hunt, make microbe models and look at everyday objects up close – very close.
About the author: Alexander's award-winning book, "All In a Drop," is about the life scientist Antony van Leeuwenhoek. He didn't speak Latin like all the other scientist of the day. Yet, through his curiosity and perseverance, he engineered a microscope unlike any other. He was the first to discover bacteria and other microscopic life and is now remembered as the "Father of Microbiology." "All In a Drop" is a lively, accessible and full-color biography that shows how a self-taught scientist was the first to observe the microbial life in and around us.
