Everyday Objects

Experimental Cities: Make Your Own Microscope

Explore how science and nature can work together to inspire the way our cities are built. Through using everyday objects, your imagination and some experimentation, take a closer look at the amazing shapes, patterns and colours you can see in nature. Learn how to build your own DIY microscope to zoom in on natural objects and find out what Biomimicry is.

You can share your creations with us by…
