Wish Challenge

Hello Foldscope community, Let’s make some changes in the way we use this community. Usually being part of a challenge moves us to be active continuously and work hard. So what I would like to suggest is to turn Microcosmos platform to a Q & A game challenge to fulfil a wish.
Read more below,

The idea is that we do not just make posts when we viewed a sample & recorded it. But it will be more engaging if we make wishes too HERE, YES ! So we can know each other much closer.

Here is more explanation, if you have ever wondered to see something under Foldscope and tried to collect sample and did not work or you could not find the origin to collect or you do not have tools you need like Microtome. Make a post here and ask if anyone can do that ( its good to include pictures in your post so to know exactly what you are looking for).

Later for example if one of us could make the dream come true and share the answer(step by step) in another new post, Plus with tagging the person who asked that.
He/She will earn a Credit – For now, I do not have idea how we can make the counting but if this idea worked maybe it will be solved with some IT skills 🙂 –

How this idea come to me?

I was looking for Elodea plant but could not find one around!
It has only 2 layers of cells so it will look so nice under Foldscope. So I decided to ask you guys if you can find one and share your results.
Do not forget you will earn a credit too 🙂 🙂

Some pictures of Elodea Plant:

Thanks in advance & I hope you will like my idea.

    love the idea! I always had this thought at the back of my mind that it would be so great if someone could try things out for me like screening a sample or just simple experiments I couldn’t do because I didn’t have the resources or was just busy 😀
    Thanks for expressing yourself Mohamad!
