Event description: 

Did you know that West Campus has a large collection of historic scientific instruments from the Peabody Museum of Natural History? Just because modern technologies made these instruments obsolete, it doesn’t mean these historic instruments aren’t cool to learn about! In fact, West Campus Collection Studies Center hosts a wide variety of well preserved instruments from microscopic glass slides to gyroscopes to one of the oldest Macintosh. If you’re lucky, you might even be able to get a hands-on experience of operating some of the instruments yourself!
