    Great! I will be traveling in the U.S. eastern seaboard from New England to DC if any students are interested. I will be able to meet and do interviews.

    We are also looking for a small donor fleet to triple our foldscopes materials here in Panama. The beta-programs we have some to date are extremely popilar.

    Our goal is to train teachers, execute workshops with students and donate all materials to schools for continued use.
