Event description

Description

Students must be age 10+ to attend Science in the Valley: Biology. This field study is taught at the Grade 6 level, teaching that the light microscope is a fundamental tool used by the cell biologist. In this hands-on workshop, students will learn how to handle and care for a microscope, as well as how to calculate magnification. Prepared slides and specimens will be set up at microscopy stations accompanied by a card of questions or activities designed to encourage observational skills and critical thinking. Microscopes will be used to examine the features of representative species from the five kingdoms: Animalia, Plantae, Protists, Monera, and Fungi. Students will also be shown how simple staining techniques are used to highlight specific cellular features such as the nucleus and plasma membrane.

Biology workshops are in our Science Labs and are two hours long. Note the time listed.

The program helps to encourage and excite students towards further study of Science. All activities are taught with an emphasis on student participation and a "can-do" attitude. Students receive personal teaching instruction from TWU's Undergraduate students!

Cost for each workshop is $12 per student, once registration is confirmed via email, a mailed deposit by cheque will be required.
