Event description

Description

In the first week of Citizen Science Youth Camp, we are going under the microscope to explore bacteria, plants, and animal tissues. We will be dissecting different plants and mushrooms, observing amoebae and paramecia in action, looking at blood cells, and drawing what we see. Young Scientists will learn about safety in the laboratory, maintaining a sterile working environment, and how to use dissection tools to prepare microscope slides. We will learn how to stain animal tissues to reveal hidden structures under the microscope.

Young Scientists will learn how to prepare petri dishes and culture bacteria colonies.

There will be a secondary theme to this week - photography. Young Scientists will choose an event that happens in an instant and then take amazing pictures using high speed photography. We will also build our own pinhole cameras, put them outside for an entire day, and then develop the film in our darkroom.
