Event Description

Come see larger-than-life photos of insects, all captured by students across Oklahoma! Open to all Oklahoma elementary schools, the Oklahoma Microscopy Society's annual competition challenges schools to submit one bug - the uglier, the better - and the insect's complete scientific description. Entries are processed at SEM labs across the state, including Oklahoma State University, Phillips 66 and the Samuel Roberts Noble Microscopy Laboratory on the University of Oklahoma campus, and imaged by a scanning electron microscope. The school with the winning entry receives a Leica stereomicroscope.
