We believe that the most important aspect of our company is not the tool itself, but the communities that use them.

The Foldscope community spans many countries, ages, and levels of scientific background. Foldscope users are able to connect & communicate through our online platform, the Microcosmos. Here users from around the world share their observations, ideas, and problems. It is a place to collaborate, find inspiration, and learn from fellow explorers! If you have a Foldscope, please register and join, upload your own findings, and become a part of this dynamic community!



We are committed to improving science education by providing affordable tools for hands-on experiments. Foldscopes have been used in classrooms all over the world to great success. If you are interested in having Foldscopes at a teacher workshop or teacher training, please contact us at info@ We are actively looking to engage with educators!
