Microscopy for Beginners [5 weeks]

This is a series of skills workshops combining presentation, demos and hands-on learning activities for anyone interested in learning the basics of microscopy in a fun, creative and experimental environment.

Experience ways of creating striking images by venturing into the unseen world of microscopy, exploring different samples and staining techniques through the medium of light. We have a range of upright and inverted microscopes that are equipped with a wide variety of microscopy techniques. This workshop will cover the physics of how microscopes work, taking you through every stage of sample preparation and a step by step guide to achieve Kohler Illumination (bright field microscopy – the basis for all other optical microscopy techniques). Explore and gain understanding into how different samples interact with different stains and gain the confidence in using a range of microscopes with different magnifications to capture your results.
