Prof. Manu Prakash and his team members kindly sent some foldscopes to us at bigyan.org.in. ‘Bigyan’ (বিজ্ঞান – means Science in Bengali) is one of the largest platforms for popular science in Bengali, created by the scientific researcher community. We had a lot of fun assembling some foldscopes. Based on our experience we published the following article:
You can see some cool images there!
We are taking the foldscope samples to various schools in West Bengal and Bangladesh. After the article was published, we have had many requests from various parts of the Bengali speaking world for foldscope samples.
At bigyan.org.in we are passionate about popularizing cool scientific inventions and discoveries in Bengali. If you are willing to help, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
