Tested From Home: How To Find Tardigrades In Your Backyard!

Ariel recommends a project to do while you’re sheltering-in-place at home: exploring the microscopic life that’s living in your backyard or local environment. Testing three kinds of microscopes, Ariel demonstrates how to find Tardigrades and other microscopic organisms with household materials. Water bears make great company!

  1. This is really cool. 0.25mm to 1mm is actually wayyyy bigger than I would have imagined they were, which makes this all the more enticing to try!

  2. I knew there was a reason for having plenty of moss around the property and a virtually unused microscope. Never get rid of anything, I say.
