Foldscoper of the Month
Congratulations to our March Foldscoper of the Month, Devendra_2009! 🎉 Throughout March, Devendra_2009 published diverse and dynamic posts on Microcosmos.
Devendra_2009's first encounter with the microscopic world all started with the viewing of onion skin under a microscope. From then on they became passionate about microscopy in their research as they found that there are so many things that we cannot see with our naked eye. With prior experience in microscopy stumbling upon the Foldscope was an amazing tool for Devendra_2009 as it gave them the ability to view these tiny things on the go with such a small and portable microscope.

Foldscope traveled to Houston, Texas this month and held a booth at the National Science Teachers Association Conference (NSTA). It was such a success that we even sold out of our NSTA specials. We are so thankful for everyone who came out and showed up to experience the magic of Foldscope!
Foldscope Now Holds Training Programs!
