MicroBooNE is a short baseline neutrino oscillation experiment at Fermilab which will use neutrinos from Booster Neutrino Beam (BNB) using a 170 ton liquid-argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC). The primary physics goal of the experiment is to answer the question of whether the observed low energy excess in MiniBooNE data is related to an excess of single electron or single photon events. While both experiments are exposed to a similar neutrino flux, the LArTPC provides excellent particle identification, tracking and calorimetry information which will significantly improve the background and signal separation. The experiment is also an important R&D project for the proposed larger LArTPC experiments including LAr1 and LBNE in terms of both detector technology and physics including measurements of low energy neutrino cross-sections. In this talk I will give the current status of the experiment with highlights of the detector construction and the beam demands to achieve the experiment's goals.
