Join us each month for special events, workshops and labs!
Nikon Small World Exhibit
April 22–July 20, 2018
Included with general admission
Arizona Science Center will feature 20 prize-winning photomicrographs. The 2017 Nikon International Small World Competition recognizes excellence in photography through the microscope and showcases the top photomicrographs. These photomicrographs capture a glimpse of a world unseen by the naked eye, and may be of great technical significance as well as sheer beauty to contemplate.
