Foldscope Orientation workshop was conducted on 11th March 2019 at Shivaji Park Lion School for Deaf. The workshop was organised for 7th standard students of the school. The workshop included introduction to foldscope with help of their class teacher, followed by demonstration of slide preparation. The participants later prepared slides of Spirogyra, stomata of betel leaf, onion peel, pollen of hibiscus and fish scales which they observed under foldscope. The participants interestingly explored the new practical world through foldscope.
The captured images of their slides were then compared to the images printed in their science textbook for better understanding. The pre-prepared slide of fungus was also shown to the participants. They also tried on their own to capture images of the slides through foldscope.
