get your ticket

Step into the footsteps of the famous Dutch scientist Antoni van Leeuwenhoek during the spring break. In the 17th century, he crafted a microscope that allowed him to be the first to see microbes. Do you want to experience that too? Create your own microscope and explore the world of microbes with your own eyes.

What to Expect?

In this workshop, you will learn to make your own microscope. With it, you'll be able to observe microorganisms that are normally invisible to the naked eye. During the workshop, you can choose from various microbes to observe, unveiling a whole new world! Of course, you can take your microscope home to continue discovering more on your own.
