Microprint Slide v1

I can’t figure out how to view the microprint slides on the foldscope. It works fine under a regular microscope! I’ve viewed the guide, I’ve tried putting space slides, I’ve used different microprint slides, I’ve used different foldscopes (I have a class set), I’ve tried using my cellphone, I’ve done it opposite than what was…

“The individual is increasingly deprived of the moral decision as to how he should live his own life, and instead is ruled, fed, clothed and educated as a social unit, accommodated in the appropriate housing unit, and amused in accordance with the standards that give pleasure and satisfaction to the masses.” Carl Jung scopes_and_quotes on…

Bio60_2021: spinach leaf

I wanted to see what a spinach leaf that was from inside the refrigerator was like and whether or not it would differ from a leaf outside (the structure of which I was already familiar with from past biology class microscope activities). I also wanted to use a more pigmented sample. The leaf seemed more browned under the microscope, perhaps due to the fridge making it cooler than what the plant is normally “accustomed to” and the fact that the leaf was already long separated from its plant. If you look closely I think those are either cell wall divisions or leaf veins that can be seen and there are what appear to be small holes in the leaf as well. #Bio60_2021

Bio60_2021: mouth bacteria

(no idea if my last post about this went through the first time so here it is again)
I didn’t feel like disposing of the petri dishes from the partner microbiome experiments from July 15 and wanted to (safely) see how the bacterial colonies would grow.
Sure enough, they grew significantly since then, with the colonies also attaining differing characteristics (texture, color, size) that were more prominent/noticeable than before.
I carefully took a sample from a particularly large, round brown colony from one of my household’s “July 15 pre-brush, post-dinner” petri dishes and observed a myriad of small brown bacteria. The cell bodies were hard to distinguish in detail, although a few can be seen.

Bio60_2021/Rose petal

This is a red rose petal I found while walking on campus. I was curious to examine the flower petal this time since I did a rosebush leaf in my last post. I was pleased to see that the quality of the picture came out much better this time. I was interested in seeing the...

Bio60_2021: Salt

I picked up one of the small packets of iodized salt from Wilbur Dining hall on campus. I remember learning a bit about the properties of salt and its chemical structure in previous science classes, so I was interested in taking a look under the microscope! Preparing the sample was a bit tricky because the…

Fly Wing

#BIO60_2021 Wing of a Fly. I found a fly that had died on a windowsill in my house. To examine its wing, I used scissors to detach the wing from the body and placed the wind on a glass slide and placed a glass covering over it. I was very curious to see the structure…


#BIO60_2021 Flea. I brushed my cat with a flea comb to remove the flea and then placed it on the slide with a glass slip covering it. When examining the flea, It was a bit difficult to see the upper body since the light did not pass through the head well. The abdomen was easier…

Bio60_2021 Red Granny Smith Apple Peel

HANNAH SHELBY I was really interested in how a peel of a red Granny-Smith apple would look under the microscope. I wasn’t expecting the image to be so interesting! I peeled an apple that I had, dried the peel, placed it on a paper slide, and observed in with the foldscope. The first time I…

Bio 60_2021 Feather

I examined a feather that I found on campus while walking my dog by sticking it to a glass slide because I was interested in seeing if there were any microorganisms living on it.

Bio 60_2021 Money Tree

I examined a leaf from my dorm money tree between two paper slides because I was interested in seeing the individual plant cells.
