Drobnych built a microscope from a LEGO Mindstorms kit

Mark Drobnych, 13, of Uzhgorod, Ukraine used a LEGO Mindstorms kit to create a microscope with two lenses and four glass slide holders that teachers can use to show students a variety of images on a projection screen. A Web cam enables schools around the world to compare images and results. He came up with the idea after watching his science teacher run between desks as she tried to help each student properly set up his or her experiment. He said his invention can also benefit schools that don’t have enough money to supply each child with a microscope.
