Bid on a Session with a Scanning Electron Microscope

Have you ever wondered how images of microscopic structures (like pollen) are created? Or how to use a scanning electron microscope? Well, now's your chance, as an exciting item in the Art Intersect Science auction.

Internationally acclaimed photomicrographer Dee Breger offers an hour's demonstration of a top-of-the-line scanning electron microscope (SEM) at Drexel University's Materials Characterization Facility in Philadelphia PA, including basic hands-on operation on a sample of choice by the successful bidder, at a mutually convenient day and time. Breger is Director of Microscopy at Drexel, a university that is renowned for its College of Engineering. The SEM session will also result in at least one micrograph of the sample as a Tiff file saved to CD.

Details on how to bid on this and other items in the auction will be posted soon.
