Agar Art

You are invited to join scientists at the University of Kent for an art project with a difference! Colourful microbes and laboratory equipment replace paint and brushes, as you create your own masterpiece on a Petri dish. After two days of microbial growth your
artwork will be photographed and sent to you electronically.

Suitable for all artistic abilities – develop your own artistic practice in a new medium, create your own greetings cards, or just have some fun mixing art and microbiology.

Suitable for ages 11+ (Under 16s to be accompanied by an adult).
