Go take some pictures! Or video! With $10 worth of materials and a smartphone, you just made a digital microscope!
Plant cells tend to work best for this particular model, but feel free to experiment. That’s what this is all about, giving you the freedom to explore.
I am a major proponent of making home science more accessible. My goal in designing and building this phone to microscope conversion stand is to provide an alternative to overly expensive microscopes. This set up is a viable option for underfunded science classrooms that would not otherwise be able to perform experiments requiring a microscope. But more than that, this device will allow people to rediscover the world around them.
Please contact me if you have any questions or suggestions regarding this project!
