Short thesis: 

Microscopes can be very difficult to get for alot of people around the world. In this session, we will assemble a very simple DIY Microscope.

Description: 

We used a simple cheap webcam to make a microscope. In short, a small hack to the optics of a standard webcam with an adjustable focus-lens, allows to create video data, with a magnification of around 100 to 400x (depending on the model) at a working distance of a few mm. The highest magnifications can be achieved by inverting (putting upside down) the lens. It's Based On The DIY Microscope Here : http://hackteria.org/wiki/index.php/DIY_microscopy
