Interested in working on a new project at Genspace, but don’t quite know where to start? Join us for a NEW monthly series hosted by Genspace’s Angela Armendariz where you can brush up on your lab skills and get a little one-on-one or small group coaching to improve your techniques and gain confidence working in the lab. Perfect for people who have taken a course or two with us and are thinking of joining the lab as members to launch their own scientific, bio-art, or biodesign project. In this session, we will teach you how to use Genspace microscopes. Bring in your favorite environmental sample or just something you want to see up close! We have dissecting microscopes for looking at big critters like plants and bugs, and compound microscopes to examine tiny critters and individual cells. We’ll teach you how to prepare slides and find what you’re looking for under different magnifications and how to avoid those pesky eyelashes. Plug in our handy camera to capture what you see!
Free for members, $25 for non-members, and $10 for students and teachers.
