A Special Microscopic Evening: Denise King, Exploratorium

From the Exploratorium: an interactive evening of making the invisible visible

Join us for a unique night-time experience with Denise King, an Exhibit Designer at San Francisco’s Exploratorium and a Marin local.

We live in a golden age of microscopes, in which new forms, designs, and applications for this fantastic tool are constantly being developed and employed.

This evening’s live demonstrations at the Indie Alley will celebrate, demonstrate and display a variety of magnification devices, from state of the art equipment and futuristic gadgets to homemade single lens scopes designed to see the invisible.

Over the course of the evening, Denise will give a live demonstration of a range of special microscopes looking at samples gathered from the Grove across from the Indie Alley. Participants are also invited to bring anything they want to see up close.

Available on the evening will be a dissection scope that can be used to look at larger 3D items such as flowers, leaves, insects, seeds, etc., a little hand-held scope that can be used with a cellphone and a fifty cent microscope“:  small, re-usable lenses that can be applied to cell phone cameras to take photos.

Adults and kids are both welcome for this event as we bring a taste of the Exploratorium to Fairfax.


$10 per person.
