Public Lab develops a cost-effective and elegantly designed way for individuals to explore their immediate environment in detail -- The Community Microscope Kit. The product is perfect for both grown-ups and children, who find excitement in actively discovering the wonders of science and life. The portable lab can be assembled in 15 minutes and connects to a smartphone or a laptop.

The Community Microscope Kit features a webcam, a set of nuts, double-sided adhesive strips, bolts and rubber bands, as well as a platform of corrugated plastic. The simplicity in the design makes the DIY microscope kit highly accessible.

With Public Lab's wonderfully educative initiative, individuals are able to identify objects as small as 5 microns -- "such as plant cells and the single-celled organisms that swim around in pond water and puddles."
