Painting with Algae Workshop / 3:00 pm in the Foundations Lab
Algae is an amazing organism. It is the largest producer of oxygen in our atmosphere, a superfood, a sustainable source of biofuel, and as an invasive species infesting The Great Lakes. Jennifer Willet has been working with algae in her artistic practice for a number of years. Join us for a hands-on bioart workshop to learn more about algae, try algae microscopy, and painting with algae!
