Grades 5–8

Examine the five kingdoms of life at the microscopic level! Use compound microscopes to view samples of animal, plant, fungi, protist, and bacteria cells at up to 400x magnification for an exploration of biodiversity. Compare and contrast different cell types, learn how scientists classify living things, and prepare your own wet mount slides.

Seats are limited to 8 students per class and are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Parents will receive an email prior to registered programs with instructions for drop off and daily health surveys.

The DNALC is committed to providing a safe place for hands-on science.
