The Paper Microscope

The Paper Microscope

Microscope InstructionsThis site has a bit of information about a paper microscope kit, they’re only sold in Germany, but it looks easy enough to recreate these and make your own…“Here’s a microscope, made from nothing but paper, two lenses, a plastic mirror and a drinking straw. Although this is not the kind of material you would expect to be used in an optical instrument, the facts are quite amazing: 50 x magnification, gear drive for focus setting, high quality plastic lenses, mirror to collect light for transmission view.” Thanks Joevennix!
