Who all joined us at the @DBTIndia #Foldscope workshop in Delhi

I am just starting to document the phenomenal experience of the series of #Foldscope workshop in Delhi, Guwahati and Kaziranga. As a means for people to cherish connections they made at the workshop – I am just documenting folks and organizations that joined us at Delhi. The location was Venky College in Delhi University. But, thanks to the financial support from @DBTIndia; we were able to engage and bring together participants from all around the country. Here is a short list of organizations that participated. If you joined us in Delhi and you are not listed here; please drop me a message/comment below. The goal of this post is for all of you to make connections with each other; so you all can connect and push forward the mission of “curiosity driven explorations” in rural and urban environment around the country.

keep exploring
cheers
Manu

The purpose of this list is to build a community around this workshop; so all of you can find each other and community with each other.

I know this is a partial list; since none of the colleges from DU are represented. If you attended the workshop and your college is not listed here; please leave a comment with link/name. Also; make some posts so we know you learned how to use Foldscope and are on your way to becoming proficient in exploring the microscopic world.

I would love to see which college actually reads the “micro-certificate” and post the text from the same right here. Let the race begin 🙂

Here are some images/pictures from the workshop: if you have images from the workshop – please upload them online and attach a link in comments.

    What a tremendous pleasure it was to meet the Foldscope team on Tuesday and learn first hand the aspirations and future developments for this project. On behalf of all the team at Atlantis we thank you kindly for sparing the time to be with us. Looking forward to making progress with Foldscope in the near future and spreading the joy of microscopy to as many people as possible.
