Labyrinth of Microscopy is an important IMC 2014 side-event targeted at youth and public. Our aim is to introduce current microscopy and provide an insight into opportunities that microscopy provides to our life and science.

As active playing is the best way for children to absorb the complicated world of science, we plan to install interactive demo stages where scientists will guide them through the amazing achievements of science. We will demonstrate different microscopic techniques used in life sciences, medicine, nanotechnology and other fields, while the children will pass through the labyrinth and fulfil various tasks.

We invite all producers in the field of microscopy to help us in building our demo stages by providing instruments needed for individual demo stages.
INFORMATION PACKAGE FOR SPONSORS

How to recognize and cure a sick cell?
Our bodies are composed of thousands and thousands of specialized cells accomplishing a variety of functions. The molecule containing complete information about the construction and function of a cell is hidden in its depth. How can we reveal this information and understand if the cell works well or if it is sick? How can we treat the cell and return it to normal life?
Instruments requested: Confocal Microscope; CCD Camera/PC; Large Monitor

A mysterious life in a puddle
One drop of water conceals amazing and enigmatic world of invisible life. How can we reveal it and penetrate into this world? Is this life friendly to us or dangerous for us?
Instruments requested: Stereo Microscope; Light Microscope; CCD Camera/PC; Large Monitor

The veterans of our planet: life-giving plants
The plants are one of the oldest habitants on Earth. They transformed our planet, and till now they provide us with an atmosphere suitable for breathing. They supply us with food, books, and houses. What are their hidden secrets?
Instruments requested: Light Microscope; Fluorescence Microscope; CCD Camera/PC; Large Monitor

The most numerous organisms on Earth in the service of biotechnology
Millions and millions of organisms live around and inside us. They settle in extremely different localities: from volcano craters and Antarctic glaciers till our stomachs, from tropic jungles till our house kitchens. Do they live in a community or they are single? How can we observe and exploit their various features?
Instruments requested: Stereo Microscope; Scanning Electron Microscope; CCD Camera/PC; Large Monitor

Touch of atom
We use different materials in our daily life, but how much do we know about our silent assistants? How smooth is a plane surface or how big mountains does it mask? How can we image and manipulate the atoms? What can we expect from materials of the future?
Instruments requested: Atomic Force Microscope; CCD Camera/PC; Large Monitor

Gold nanoparticles: universal tool of the future
From the beginning of human civilization, gold has played a paramount role in wealth and power due to its imperishable value. Ancient alchemists attributed gold an exclusive and unique status. How do gold properties change when we move from the attractive jewellery and get deeper into the world of nanoparticles? From metamaterials and “invisible covering” through ultrasensitive and miniature sensors to the “intelligent” drug carrier, take our invitation to the near future!
Instruments requested: Light Microscope; CCD Camera/PC; Large Monitor
