Digital Microscopes: Crowd Build and Photo Contest

Monday, August 31, 2015 - 15:00

Discovery Week at AUIS kicked off with a microscope building activity by students and faculty members. The low cost digital microscopes were built using easily available material, including smart-phones and tablets for digital imaging.

The students have now been divided into teams and will use the microscopes to photograph and record water and cells samples taken around the campus. The photos taken will be collected and awards will be given to the three best photos and videos.
