S370: Building a pocket microscope in Splash 2018 (Apr. 07, 2018)
Have you heard of a 1$ pocket microscope that can magnify samples 200 times? Sounds super cool! In this course you will build a microscope from a kit I will provide and learn to use it and take pictures! Note : This microscope was invented by a Stanford University biophysicist, Manu Prakash, and his team. I have reserved Foldscopes through their Kickstarter campaign to show this microscope to everyone I can!
