BIOLOGY: THE SCIENCE OF LIFE. ALL LIVING ORGANISMS.

Join our Darby Library Microscopy Club, which meets every Thursday at 4:00 PM. We have quality microscopes, and we examine all types of organisms from Amoebae to Viruses. We investigate all subdivisions of Biology, like Medicine, Nursing, Botany, Zoology, etc.

Biology is an essential scientific discipline because it impacts every human and living creature, past and present. Our Microscopy Lab will give students hands-on experience in the use of light microscopes, mounting specimens, examining specimens, etc. We explain the theory behind the biologic phenomena. There is no substitute for examining specimens "live" through the eyepiece.

We reinforce what students learn in school in a Fun way! We answer the question, "What can I do with a career in Biology?" For students in middle and high school and all who are curious about the phenomenon of Life!

The Darby Library Microscopy Club is part of the NASA@MYLIBRARY project led by the National Center for Interactive Learning at the Space Institute. Partners include the American Library Association, the Pacific Science Center, Cornerstones of Science and Educational Development Center.
