Microscope Exploration With Academy Entomologists

Friday, March 31, 2023

10:00 AM-12:00 PM

Ready for your close-up? The invertebrates on display in Microsculpture are larger than life, both on the wall and under the microscope.

Join Academy entomologists (scientists who study insects) as they bring their work to life by exploring specimens from our world-renowned collection of over 4 million insects.

Each week, get a high-tech view of a different invertebrate, learn about some of the Academy’s most beautiful species and speak to our enthusiastic entomologists about their research. Find out everything you ever wanted to know about how to collect, study and preserve scientific specimens.

How does examining the finer details of an invertebrate, through photography and microscopy, enable us to uncover an invertebrate’s true nature?
