South Brisbane, Brisbane Area

Free Entry

Join the Microscopy and MyScope team to experience the excitement of scientific discovery with virtual and real world light and electron microscopy activities! Experts will be on hand to facilitate a range of engaging imaging activities involving light microscopes and scanning electron microscopes. These specialist tools allow you to explore at several thousand times magnification a world your naked eye can’t see. Observe biological samples such as native bees, butterfly wings, mother-of-pearl, gecko feet or your own hair and skin and also stones, fibres and technical samples. You are welcome to engage with our microscopes to ‘make the invisible visible’.
