We are writing to describe our third workshop which was held as a part of Science district of Interliber (Croatian biggest book fair) in the Croatian capital of Zagreb.
The workshop was based on preparing microscopic slides for animal and botanical samples and observing them in three different ways – using daylight, LED lamps, and mobile phone cameras. What we consider specific for us is using overhead projector foil (appropriately cut) as an underlying glass and a scotch tape as the cover glass.
This workshop, as each one before it, also left behind lots of amazed children and their parents.
Writing this, we would like to conclude a cycle of three demonstrative workshops we have held in which we introduced Foldscope to many children and their parents. Each of our projects left the observers amazed and starving for more. Likewise, Foldscope opened new horizons for us and connected us more as a team.
Our major goal is, depending on possibilities, to spread workshops to schools where kids could assemble Foldscopes on their own and take them home.
We hope you liked our work and articles.
Greetings from Croatia for now,
