Medicine close-up (drop-in family microscopy activities)

Oxfordshire County Library, Queen Street, Westgate, Oxford OX1 1DJ

Join medical researchers from the University of Oxford’s Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences for a range of fun activities using microscopes and hand lenses.  Can you recognise familiar objects when you see them close up?  Find out how microwriting can prevent forgery and how scientists use microscopes to help them fight disease.

Drop in any time between 9.30am and 1.30pm.

There is no need to book.
