Make Your Own Microscope

Join Renaissance Person and Dr. Mike McCann at The Yard: Gowanus to build your own functional, paper microscope (featuring Foldscope)!

Foldscope was created with a vision to solve an accessibility problem in science. What began as a simple idea has now grown into a company that provides powerful low-cost tools to communities around the world, all in an effort to help advance education, health, and opportunity! By purchasing and using Foldscope, you directly support its mission of bringing Foldscope to communities that often do not have the means to engage in science - both locally and globally.

Your ticket includes instruction, a Foldscope to keep, wine, beer, and seltzer.
