Swimming off the wall
Watch microscopic algae swim before your very eyes. Learn how researchers in the Physics of Life Group at the University of York study organisms unseen to the naked eye, helping advance technology in medicine and biofuels. By incorporating lasers into advanced microscopes they can explore a previously unobserved world of microscopic swimmers. Join them as they adapt that technology to show you a projection of these swimming creatures. Put on a pair of 3D glasses and see the path you'd take as a microscopic cell!
