Scraped Leaf

These photos depict the scrapings of a leaf. The sample was taken from the Princeton University campus, specifically the Jadwin courtyard. This was a relatively easy process to build the Foldscope, take a sample, and to view the sample. This was an enlighting process in that we could analyze samples with a microscope made from paper, effectively demonstrating the power of innovation in building cheap, usable microscopes.
