Making new friends!

First ever large classroom Foldscope kit arrived Iraq.

My 9 year old brother is very excited,
he cannot wait to share his discoveries with you.

As my new journey is about to start with Foldscope community and within my city Kirkuk. I would like to say hello to everyone and looking forward to know you. After a couple of days, I will do a workshop for Foldscope introduction so I need your advice. What would be like an ideal Foldscope workshop? Please share with me your experience.

The reason why I am very interested in doing this is becuase I believe Foldscope will be the reason to draw the smile of discovery on face of hundreds of people in Kirkuk as a start but for long term definitely all over Iraq hopefully.

Special thanks to @manup and Foldscope Team without their support this opportunity could not be available. So we appreciate your efforts and time. We wish all the best,

    A warm welcome to the foldscope community Mohammed. It warms our hearts to see you as a part of ever growing foldscope community. Your work and passion is remarkable / and we are here to help.

    This thread would be a great place for sharing different ways folks in the community run foldscope workshops. I will start by sharing a resource – which is a video of a foldscope workshop I ran in Madagascar. You will notice the style of my workshops are very informal and open ended – I prefer running workshops outdoors and it goes from structured to unstructured as time passes by.

    Video here:

    I encourage everyone in the community to share what they prefer as a mode of running workshops. We have a lot to learn from each other.
