Build a microscope and take it home!
At our DIY Community Microscope workshop, we’ll guide participants through building their own microscope with affordable materials: cardboard, bolts, webcams, and tape. It takes only 15-30 minutes to build, and plugs into a smartphone or laptop. We’ll look at water and plant samples from nearby sites, and talk about ways that using DIY science tools can lead to meaningful discovery.
Public Lab is an open community of activists, tinkerers, organizers, makers, educators and scientists around the world, who have worked together to design this kit. We’ve worked with a growing coalition to take a Do-It-Yourself approach to environmental justice issues.
