Have you ever watched an insect fly through the air? How about a maple seed as it gets carried by the wind and floats gently to the ground? Is there anything similar about wings and leaves on a microscopic level that contributes to the ability to fly? This week's blog takes a closer look at these structures under a Foldscope to see!
It is March and all around me plants are starting to emerge from the ground after the cold winter season. It is also the month for St. Patrick’s Day and four leaf clovers! All of these things make me think of the color green and how we can learn more about it under aFoldscope. Let’s take a closer look at what makes something green!
This Foldscope Explores... blog covers three microscopy techniques that can take your Foldscope explorations to a whole new level. Expand your skills so you can discover even more of the microscopic world.
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.
