SPIE/OSA student chapter UW-Madison had a great time at Saturday Science at the Wisconsin Institute of Discovery on October 7th 2017. The theme was the buzz in your backyard, so there were quite a lot of microscopes in the building and quite a lot of bugs. Our members had fun with the kids and parents showing off images of creepy crawlies, flowers, and leaves. The kids were especially excited to look at the bugs and asked a lot of questions about the biology and imaging. Some parents showed interest in buying the handheld portable microscopes we were using on bouquets.
Thanks everyone for volunteering. Here are some photos!
