We will guide the participants through the construction of their own microscope with affordable materials: cardboard, screws, webcams, and tape. The model is built in half an hour and connected to a smartphone or laptop. We will see water samples and plants from nearby sites, and discuss ways in which the use of DIY science tools can lead to meaningful discovery, empowerment of citizenship and self-defense of territories.

Each participant will finish the workshop with their own microscope.
