Did you know that scientists can also be artists? This is the time to come discover their art!
This event will be an amalgamation of science and art. Create your own piece of art with bacteria, paint with Bioink, sketch microscopic organisms, win a hand knitted hat based on your favorite science topic (and maybe learn to knit as well) and much more
MICROBIAL ART: Create your own microbial artwork. Skip brushes, paint and canvas for bacteria and agar dish.
BIO INK PLANKTON ART: Create your art piece using stamps of plankton species and bio ink, a natural bio-pigment produced by living bacteria at the Bio Design Studio - Tech Museum.
PAINT THE MICROWORLD: View your surroundings through a microscope and paint or sketch what you see, using bio ink.
DESIGN YOUR SCIENCE HAT: Create a design(s) for a science themed hat, inspired by your own science or any science topic that you find fascinating. Our knitter scientists will choose one lucky winner and will knit their design for them.
LEARN TO KNIT: Our knitter scientist will also teach how to knit, if you wanna knit your designs yourself!
