Spend the evening in the Micro World Investigate Lab using microscopes to explore the fantastic creatures that live in a drop of water. Pond water, that is. From unicellular ciliates to multicellular – yet still microscopic – animals, you’ll be amazed at the variety of gliding, crawling, oozing and darting that takes place in less than 1 milliliter of water. Bring a flash drive and take home pictures of your favorite critters.
