Tetrahymena Caricatures

Caricatures of Tetrahymena based on the ASSET spice module drawn by students in Mrs. Mayer’s 5th grade class at Northeast Elementary, Ithaca, New York. Students designed experiments that tested the reaction of living Tetahymena to a wide variety of spices, monitoring whether the cells were attracted to, repelled from, or neutral to each spice. After making their observations, students were invited to use their imaginations and draw caricatures of what they observed through the microscope. The results are awesome examples of science meeting art!

Upcoming Workshop

Foldscope Workshop for Elementary, Middle and High School Teachers
Saturday, January 14, 2017
10:00 AM – 3:30 PM
Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine

ASSET is offering a 5-hour workshop featuring the educational use of Foldscopes.

If you haven’t heard of Foldscopes yet –

There is amazing stuff out there.

The inventor, Dr. Manu Prakesh of Stanford University received a MacArthur Fellowship this year.

Maxwell Coyle, a Foldscope roving ambassador who has presented Foldscope seminars around the world, will join us to provide hands-on instruction and a unique perspective on Foldscope technology. See the brochure for details.

Since this is a hands-on workshop, attendance will be limited. Let us know soon if you are interested in joining us for what promises to be a fun and unique workshop.
