Our Inaugural Day with Foldscope

My Foldscope companion pronounced the kit so much fun. There were so many tools for gathering samples. One of the two eppendorf tubes furnished, the mini-scissors, the long tweezers, and the magnifier with its LED light were his arsenal for collecting specimens. He killed two ants. His mother provided diverse samples of food, as shown below. Yet by mid-afternoon, after a round of catch, he announced that baseball was funner than science to him — although science was incredibly fun. We’ll see, if he becomes a graduate student. To get a sample of blood, he sought to scrape his shin and succeeded, reminding me of graduate students who draw each other’s blood to obtain sufficient supplies for their research.
