I Heart Science: Tiny Creatures


Saturday, February 13, 2021, 1:00pm to 2:30pm


Harvard Museums of Science & Culture—Online

Break out of the winter doldrums and welcome Harvard science into your home with the all-virtual I Heart Science festival lasting from Friday, February 12 to Monday, February 15. This day’s “Tiny Creatures” theme looks at bacteria, viruses, and other microbial creatures.

During the live webinar, starting at 1:00 pm ET, meet live tardigrades, also known as water bears. Watch recorded videos featuring Harvard scientists who study bacterial resistance, ways to test for viruses, and how bacteria grow.

At home, try your hand at making a water-drop microscope, comparing communities of microbes, and drawing microbes. Links to videos and activities will be sent to registered participants.
