Ernst Haeckel Diatoms

Friday July 22 | S.T.E.A.M.-Y Ladies Night Out

Did you know that people aren’t the only things that like “selfies?” Inspired by the work of artist Ernst Haeckel, this hands-on workshop includes down-to earth science talk about diatoms and the opportunity to draw your own mini “Cellfies.” It will be like taking a snap shot of your own cells!
