What amazing creatures live in a single drop of pond water? Students observe how to prepare slides and zoom in on microscopic wonders like the stinging tentacles of a pint-size predator and the beating heart of a tiny, translucent crustacean. This program teaches microscope skills and gives insight into an incredible microscopic world. Topics include animal adaptations, aquatic ecology, habitats and scientific equipment.

Virtual classroom programs are designed for up to 40 student participants on zoom. Virtual programs are 45-minutes of demos and lessons and allow for a 15-minutes Q&A.

A minimum of 2 weeks' advance notice is required for all registration requests. If you have questions, please contact us at 503.797.4661 or register@omsi.edu.
