This week, Room 15 students showed a lot of resilience as we learnt from Zoe, our Tuakana, on how to make a Foldscope. Some of us have finished and have been able to get a very close up look at frog’s blood, and spit! The rest of us have almost finished putting our Foldscopes together and cannot wait to become scientific explorers!
The Foldscope is a foldable microscope, made mostly of paper. The inventors believe that every child in the world should carry a microscope in his/her pocket.
Thank you so much to the Petersen family for lending these to us. Using the Foldscopes will no doubt support us in our Term focus to me ako tonu (keep learning), be curious and seek out new experiences.
