  • Science lessons leap off textbook pages and come to life when students use microscopes. Here’s what to consider when investing in microscopes for schools.
  • Whether they fly, crawl, or float, bugs are everywhere. Learn how to study insects under the microscope and appreciate the complexity of the insect world.
  • Scientists use microscopes to study them, but many tiny creatures remain uncategorized. So, what are aquatic invertebrates, and where are they found?
  • Summary:

    • Sand is a great way to ease into the new school year
    • Sand is interdisciplinary
    • Sand makes science fun
    • Share your observations with others to show what you learned!
  • 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.
