Come see this amazing technology in action by looking at samples from microscopes already set up with lake water, bee wings and more. This science focused initiative will send you home with your very own Foldscope so you can continue your love for science all year long. Best of all, the microscope works with your cell phone so you can take pictures and record what you are watching.?

What is a Foldscope??It is an ultra-affordable, paper microscope that you assemble yourself. Designed to be inexpensive, durable, and to give optical quality similar to conventional research microscopes, Foldscope brings hands-on microscopy to new places!

Foldscope Kits have been funded by the Nebraska Environmental Trust and the Nebraska Academy of Science.
