British Science Week 2016
Friday 11th to Sunday 20th March 2016
Microscopy plays an important role in many branches of science, from archaeology to zoology, and the Quekett has members who are interested in almost any science that you can think of. Most members are recreational microscopists rather than professionals, but they produce top class microscope slides, drawings and photomicrographs (photographs taken through a microscope) and they are happy to share their skills and knowledge with other members and also with members of the public at outreach events.
To mark British Science Week 2016 we showed a small selection of the specimens that our members have examined, with a new page each day.
- Reindeer hairs
- Sea mouse hairs
- Plant fossils
- Oak leaf galls
- Butterfly tongue
