Cape Town Science Centre (CTSC) Foldscope Workshops

This Saturday at the Cape Town Science Centre I held the first in a series of workshops for hands-on STEM workshops at the Cape Town Science Centre. Young students and their parents were invited to join in on the DIY origami fun, exposing kids to a low-cost tool to which they were able to see leaves, onions, flowers, and more under the microscope with!
