This is our home-built light table, used to mount several LegoScopes at once. Here we see several kids at the Bay Area Science Festival 2013, using scopes they just built to look at biological-sample slides.

Here, a student is studying some live organisms using our Scientific LegoScope. This microscope integrates a professional-level objective into the simple Lego structure to provide very high quality images. (example below).
