Join us at one of our favorite annual events - hanging out with the cool teachers who bring science and discovery to children every day. We’ll be demo’ing the Foldscope and making sure everyone knows what a great device it is to bring into the classroom.

We’re raffling off foldscopes to teachers every month of 2020. Foldscope is giving away up to 3 Combo kits (valued at $70.00 each) to teachers who join us in our quest to get microscopes into the hands of all children around the world. To enter, post on microcosmos.foldscope.com or post on social media with #foldscope, then complete this form to tell us which of those you did. On the first day of each month we will choose a lucky winner from the entries of the month before - that person will receive up to 63 Foldscopes sent to their school (postage paid)!


Join us at the biggest ‘toy’ show in the world - all the latest and best electronics and other cool stuff under one (well, multiple) roof! Foldscope will be there!
