This news item is about: Last week, the college hosted a workshop that demonstrated the power of simple, accessible science with the Foldscope - a $1 paper microscope. Led by NIH scientist Lakshminarayan Iyer and Jim Cybulski, president and CEO of Foldscope Instruments, Inc., and sponsored by ASSET, an NIH-funded, science-education outreach program at Cornell University, the workshop explored the numerous applications and integration of Foldscope into classroom curricula with 25 teachers from communities throughout New York. "Every child should have access to a microscope to explore the world around them," said Donna Cassidy-Hanley, senior research associate and ASSET program manager. "It allows kids to do science as science ought to be done - which means being creative, looking at things that pique your interest and not just because you're told to."
