Onion Tissue

We have gathered a team of professors and students to introduce them the foldscope for the first time in Afghanistan. Everybody assembled their foldscopes with ease and enthusiastically viewed samples of blood, onion, and hair on their foldscopes. Luckily, I am the first person from Afghanistan to upload the result of my foldscope in the microsmos community. There is more to come from Afghanistan…Onion Tissue - Foldscope

    Dear Friend,

    Welcome to the Foldscope community.. it;s such a delight to read a post from Afghanistan. An incredible microscopic diversity is just hidden around the world; and if we don’t care, share and show it to everyone – it will never be cared for.

    It would be fantastic to see some of the surroundings, picture of you foldscope, and people’s reactions when you show your foldscope to your friends. What do they think. What about a random person on the street. It would be fascinating to share comments you hear from you friends.

    It’s such a joy to read your post, and we all at the Foldscope community welcome you. We will eagerly wait for your next post.


  2. Dear Manu,

    Thank you for the comment. I have uploaded some of the pictures from our first session. I have asked the team to create accounts here and upload their works here. Some of them don’t know how to use this website and we will have another session for them to train them how to use this website. We will have more posts soon.

    @Abari: Yes – it will be valuable to do some quick training for the users on the website itself. Once they get a hang for it; it is very very simple to use.

    Dear Mr. Ahmadzai,

    I am beyond delighted to see a group of excited, curious advocates for science and knowledge sharing the wonder of microscopy in the heart of Afghanistan. I will be closely following the adventures and discoveries made by your group. I would love to talk with you some time on matters of science advocacy in your part of the world.
