Protists and Other Microscopic Life

We will take you on a journey to the microscopic world where we will examine the lesser-seen kingdoms of Protista and microscopic Animalia. The students will learn the parts and functions of a compound microscope, prepare their own slides from pond samples and learn to identify the creatures that they find.
Program length is 45 minutes.

This program is held onsite at our Downtown Raleigh location.
