This DIY laser microscope is quick, easy and cheap! It’s a simple rendition of other laser microscopes I’ve seen around the Internet. It would be a great project to do with your children when you need something to do together!

The video above describes how to set up the microscope as well as shows it in action! Below is a list of the items I use in the video, however, you can use other items. The biggest thing is just trying to figure out how to hold a droplet of water.

  1. Green Laser Pointer (Other colors MAY work, but I know Green does)
  2. Syringe (I’ve also seen paperclips used. Anything that can hold a round drop of water will do)
  3. Syringe Supports
