Wonderwater Children's Workshop at the EJC Arboretum

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Take a peek into the microscopic world of aquatic bacteria!

Become a scientist for the day with JMU Biology professors Dr. Morgan Steffen and Robert Walters at the Edith J Carrier Arboretum for a children's workshop of microscopic proportions. Elementary aged children will learn how to use a microscope to view and identify microbes. 

Bring a water sample from home - the dirtier the better! We suggest samples from fish tanks, muddy streams, puddles, or even the beach! Our presenters will have water from places close to home like the Shenandoah River as well as faraway places such as Hawaii and the Bahamas.

This educational children's workshop is free for all to attend, and parents or caregivers are always welcome.
Registration is required online at http://www.jmu.edu/arboretum/.
