Frostbite Theater

March Microscope Madness! (Week 1 - 2016)

Announcer: Frostbite Theater presents... Cold Cuts! No baloney!

Joanna and Steve: Just science!

Joanna: Hi! I'm Joanna!

Steve: And I'm Steve!

Joanna: Once again, it's time for March Microscope Madness!

Steve: Just like last year, we'll show you three images that were taken using a microscope. If you think you know what the objects are, let us know in the comments. And, come back next week to see whether or not you were right!

Joanna: So, if you're ready, here are your first three images!

Image one, taken at a magnification of 35.

Steve: Image two, taken at a magnification of 50.

Joanna: Image three, taken at a magnification of 1,000.

All right! Don't forget to leave us your guesses in the comments and join us again next week for the answers and for your next three images!

Thanks for watching!


Steve: Bye!
