Join us as ZEISS ANZ host an interactive webinar for kids that will show them the wonders of the small world. Aimed at children between the ages of 6-10, we will introduce them to the idea of a microscope and how a microscope can be used to make small things big. For approximately 20 minutes, children see will how everyday items such as leaves, insects and even their hands look under a microscope. In the face of current events, children will also learn and see the importance of handwashing. This will be interactive, and children will be encouraged to participate and ask questions throughout the webinar.

2. Life can be small
