Now in it’s 7th year, the Big Geekend, hosted by Guernsey Museums is a celebration of offbeat hobbies, pastimes and collections. So embrace your nerdy nature at this two-day event on the 26th and 27th September 2020. Twenty twenty promises to be a bumper year with many interests on displays in one way or another including, but not exclusively….

  • Geeky Trees
  • Model trains
  • Cosplay
  • Model making
  • Microscopes & biology
  • Dinosaurs
  • Cartoons
  • Morris dancing
  • War games

You’ll find us in the Microscopes and biology section with our portable field microscope from iolight.

Check out this video of tardigrades under an iolight

 

We’re bringing this microscope along because we can connect it up to an iPad and you can see what’s under the slide without having to crane your neck and look down a microscope. We can take pictures with it and several people are lending us their slide collections, so you can have a look at everything from pseudoscorpions to a cross-section of a human aorta… which is part of a human heart!
