Hello Foldscope community! I always find fascinating discoveries through the Foldscope, and it seems like it is something new every time. However, I wanted to put a new challenge to myself and bore down further into a single research question, to push the limits of how far I can go with Foldscope and other DIY/frugal science methods.
There will be two other components to this project:
- Local focus: I am beginning with a diseased leaf I found in Tilden Park in Berkeley, CA, just a mile or two from my apartment near the university. I’m interested in taking on a project close to my community, but literally outside the bubble of the university.
- Edited video format, to consolidate photos, videos, and commentary into a streamlined, digestible, somewhat fun and whimsical unit.
Enjoy the first installment here:
