Foldscope Community in Afghanistan

Afghanistan Holding Group (AHG) is working to establish a foldscope community in Afghanistan. Here are some pictures of a team of school students, teachers and employees who are working to develop this community. This was an introductory session for these people and they went on to introduce foldscopes to their families, friends, and neighborhoods. We have received excellent feedback from this team. They will be uploading their works in the coming weeks. During this session, everyone assembled their foldscopes and experimented various kinds of samples.

    Delighted to read this @Omar and co. I would love to have everyone involved create individual accounts and share explorations with communities they are from. It would be wonderful for them to be champions in local communities (Afghan Education Institute etc etc), and have them create leaders in those communities.

    Let’s plan round two of the events. Maybe, before you fly back. Let’s plan another skype call this week. @Tom – time?

    cheers
