Jay Holmes and students enjoyed a fun year of microscope work at the Museum! They invite us to sample some of those activities with them, on Sunday May 21, beginning at 1 PM,  in the Davis Classroom East, on the second floor.

Hands-on stations:

– students making microscopes from glass, brass, and wood
– Darwin’s microscopy on the Beagle and at Down House — Jay will have very recently returned from visiting and learning there!
– Fun tools for family engagement activities

We’re revisiting NYMS’ original home, the American Museum of Natural History!

Directions (note well!):  Meet us in the Davis Classroom East, inside AMNH, on the second floor. Enter through the Main Security Entrance, via the subway station below the main stairs and equestrian Teddy Roosevelt facing Central Park West.  Very important–other entrances charge admission!

Jay Holmes, NYMS Board of Managers member, is an educator at the American Museum of Natural History, where for 25 years he has explored the world with learners of all ages. From the Museum’s iconic exhibits, to geology and biology of Central Park and NYC, to the Galapagos Islands, and beyond, Jay enjoys thinking about the natural world, our interactions with and our understanding of the natural world. Jay’s fascination with microscopy, the microscopic world, and microscopes started in elementary school, and “…exploring pond life through magnifying optics has never ceased to amaze!” Jay is also an historian,  connoisseur and collector of antique microscopes, and he fabricates microscopes for study and recreational use.
