There is a Foldscope kit for everyone. We offer foldable paper microscopes in a variety of configurations — ranging from individual kits packed with microscopy accessories, to classroom kits that provide the largest number of Foldscopes for the lowest price. Visit our store to learn how you can get the most out of your Foldscope experience.
The best part of Foldscope is not the tool itself, but the people who use it. Foldscope has an official app and an online platform called the Microcosmos, where Foldscope users share their explorations. All of Foldscope’s community spaces are free, open, and user-driven. Discover what other curious Foldscopers are up to!

I believe Foldscope’s mission to place a microscope in the hands of every student in the world is remarkable. Providing high-quality and affordable educational resources for students to discover and engage in scientific inquiry is very important. Throughout our work together, I observed 100% active engagement in inquiry-based learning at all levels… from 8th-grade students in an Introductory Agriscience and Technology course to Agriscience Teachers who have been teaching from as few one to over 25 years. Very impressive and very rewarding to see such an impactful professional development experience occur for our agriscience students and teachers in South Carolina!
