Foldscope unleashed curiosity of Iraq’s Kids towards new world.

One tool, drived us to a new excitement!

Dear Foldscope community,

This is very exciting moment for all of us as “Knowledge Space” Team as well as any who met Foldscope in Iraq. Thankfully by the Kits – sent by generous Foldscope Team I did the first workshop in Iraq, Kirkuk with the help of Knowledge Space Team.

The workshop was unique and original by the warm emotions that kids made us feel. For that reason, I can say Foldscope brought the smile at the same time adventure into 11 kids lives the participated. 

I prepared some slides for them to see for example Onion peel and human hair.
But, unfortunately, I couldn’t prepare a moving microorganism slide to show them the motility of microorganisms.

Onion Peel

We are looking forward to contributing to this community of Foldscope by sharing our discoveries. Plus we are amazed by interesting posts are being shared so we are really having fun and learning at the same time.

Thanks for reading our first story and I am willing to know many of you by the time.
