MBL, Woods Hole, MA – The MBL Associates invite middle-school students to explore “life under the lens” at a free school vacation week activity at the MBL (Marine Biological Laboratory), Wednesday, February 20 from 10:00 to 11:30 AM in the Loeb Laboratory, 18 MBL Street, Woods Hole. The event, “Out of Sight — Microscopic Explorations,” is free, but space is limited and registration is required.
Students will move from station to station, trying a variety of hands-on experiments using the microscope or magnifying lens. Following along in their own observation booklets, students will be introduced to scientific inquiry, and for some, to their first use of a microscope. The event is open to children in fifth through eighth grade.
For more information about this event, or to register, contact Kama Thieler at the Woods Hole Science, Technology, and Education Partnership (WHSTEP), email@example.com or (508) 289-3478.
