Come and see our scientists and volunteers in action in the Cocoon's SPA.
They are working on our diatom collections to bring the tiny and invisible world of phytoplankton to life and increase the awareness of these organisms and access to our remarkable collections.
The SPA is situated on the upper walkway in the Cocoon - check at the Darwin Centre reception for details - and you can look in on work being done and also engage with the volunteers and scientists.
Like what you see and want to get involved? Find out more about our V Factor volunteer initiative online. Or pick up and complete a V Factor leaflet at the Museum's information desks.
