Foldscope Workshop for Educators

Merging of Art and Science. Workshop attendees learn about the Foldscope and how to use it. Each person is encouraged to collect specimens that interest them to view under the Foldscope and complete an acrylic abstract painting of their findings.

My favorite thing is to see the collaboration between the students and to hear the enthusiastic “oooohssss and ahhhhh’s” that you hear throughout the workshop.
