Visualizing Science


See the world in more detail by using a range of visual technologies. Build observation skills and explore artifacts from the Museum's Collections and actual research objects from MIT labs. This hands-on microscopy workshop includes a gallery tour of our neuroscience exhibition, The Beautiful Brain.  

This workshop is presented in conjunction with The Beautiful Brain: The Drawings of Santiago Ramón y Cajal, now on view.
