Use a microscope to observe things that are familiar to you, things that are edible, and things that you don't usually don’t pay attention to, then see how their appearances completely change! Each person will have a 15x handmade microscope and take a walk while observing various things such as flowers and stones. A magnification of 15x is a level that allows you to see the pollen grains of flowers, mold hyphae, and the structure of the compound eyes of insects—it is a look into a world that is completely different from the world you can only view with your regular eyesight! You can immediately observe what you find, collect whatever items you want, and enjoy collecting and observing. Your guide will explain what you find as much as possible.
