DIY Bio// Agar Art
October 8, 2019 @ 6:45 pm - 8:45 pm
What is Agar Art you ask?
It is a perfect marriage of biology and art that everyone and anyone can get into. Come to the Rockville Science Center to learn about some special microbes that produce an array of beautiful and striking colors. You will be able to use the tools and guidance provided by CABS to create your very own living work of art on agar plates!
You may have seen the incredible works of art on petri dishes being shared all over social media? If not, just Google image search “Agar Art” and be inspired. Perhaps your art work has what it takes to enter the national American Society for Microbiology (ASM) contest and win!
