Everybody can build microscope!

Building your own DIY MICROSCOPE only involves converting an ordinary webcam into a microscope. The webcam’s conversion can be quickly effected manually. The electronics remains unaltered, only the position of the lens is changed. A solid platform enables fixing and accurately focusing the tiny study objects. The objects are illuminated with a light-emitting diode (LED).

Join and explore the microcosm around you!

Participants will be invited to build their own microscope in just 1-2 hours, or they can just join us in our BioHacking-Lab to explore various microscopic lifeforms or even their own cells, tiny worms, single cell animals and waterbears.
