  • Vital stains are valuable not only for their role in histology, but also for their inherent natural beauty. So let’s learn what they are, who first used them in histology, and what they look like under aFoldscope.
  • Summary:

    • The microscopic properties of soil can help you to understand the macroscopic properties of soil and how it is used.
    • Making connections between a natural resource and its cultural significance can deepen your understanding and appreciation of the resource.
    • Share your observations with others to show what you learned!
    • Students need opportunities to use scientific tools and equipment
    • Using a fun thing like candy can make taking scientific measurements an enjoyable experience
    • Share your observations with others to show what you learned!
  • Holly trees are commonly used as symbols of the winter season. This blog takes a close up look at the leaves, berries, and bark of the holly tree.
  • Foldscope Explores... The Fibonacci Sequence

    This blog explores the pattern of numbers known as the Fibonacci Sequence. You will learn how to calculate numbers in the sequence, how to model the numbers into a spiral, and how to find the Fibonacci Sequence in nature! And of course, you will take a close look at what you find by putting it in a Foldscope!

  • Summary:

    • The colors of fall leaves are inside the leaves all year round.
    • Observations of color gradation is a way to incorporate the elements of art into your science lesson.
    • Studying the process of color change in leaves will improve understanding of the life cycle of trees.
    • Share your observations with others to show what you learned!
  • Summary:

    • Sand is a great way to ease into the new school year

  • The relationship between Foldscope Instruments and Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District (Cy-Fair ISD, Texas) began one year ago during the pandemic. At the time, Cy-Fair ISD was looking for creative ways to engage teachers and students with science and found Foldscope. One year later and approximately 3,600 Foldscopes distributed, here we are as a team deploying Foldscope training services for middle and high school teachers. The goal is to prepare Cy-Fair teachers to incorporate Foldscopes as their newest classroom tool to excite and engage students in STEM learning. 
  • TL;DR

    • Close observation helps improve focus
    • Close observation involves all five senses
    • Close observation is interdisciplinary
    • Share your observations with others to show what you learned!
