About my talk/contribution:
I will present various aspect of my experiences working and teaching with the DIY (do-it-yourself) Microscope. Through a simple hack of the optics of any cheap and broadly accessible webcam, anyone can build a “good-enough” microscope to be used for educational activites, aswell to a limited extent as citizen science projects for environmental monitoring and medical diagnostics. I will present pedagogic approaches to be applied with the DIY microscopes for creative making skills, biodiversity awareness, standard biology/anatomy classes and gender biopolitcs.

the build-instructions is on our wiki, translations welcome!

5 years ago, i presented this and other projects in Kenya, and i am still challenged to find a way to more broadly disseminate the DIY microscope in a global context.
