  Science Center, Mijnbouwstraat 120, Delft
INFO: Are you ready to start exploring the world of microorganisms and see the humongous biodiversity of the world from a first row seat? After registration we will show you how to use Foldscope microscopes in a fun way. We will guide you into the world of microorganisms with the help of experts in the field of microbiology.

The Foldscope is an ultra-affordable origami-based microscope made from cheap materials such as paper. The purpose of these affordable and easy-to-use microscopes is to bridge the gap between people and their curiosity in science. The microscope is capable of magnifying objects up to 140 times, which is good enough to distinguish certain bacterial species from each other. On top of that it is also compatible with your smartphone, which allows you to easily share your new discoveries with the world.

The money obtained from the tickets and the donation together will be used to get schools in India in touch with science by providing them with at least 200 Foldscopes!
