Visit from the VDIni-Club in Mönchengladbach
On May 18th, 2019, the kids club of the VDI (Association of German Engineers) visited our lab in Mönchengladbach, biomess. The group of 18 children ages 6 and up, got to experience an exciting day in the laboratory with the theme of “magnification.” They were allowed to pick one of a variety of samples (e.g. salt, sugar, paper, insects) and observe it under a stereo microscope. Then the same samples were observed using a scanning electron microscope at a much higher degree of magnification. At the end, the kids were able to take home a picture of their “own” sample.
