New Stereo Microscopes for the Biosphere Potsdam

Tuesday, August 19, 2014, the Biosphere Potsdam was visited by 30 pupils from Berlin. There was a special surprise for these pupils: they could try the new stereo microscopes in the rain forest school. During that they got to know many interesting things about butterflies and could take a closer look at them through the microscope.

The stereo microscopes were funded by the project: “Handy für die Umwelt”. This project is a cooperation between the Deutsche Umwelthilfe and Deutsche Telekom. For every old phone Deutsche Telekom donates 1.50 € for an environmentally friendly project or campaign and 1.50 € are donated to Deutsche Umwelthilfe.

The Biosphere continues the old cell-phone collection project. If you want to support this project, you can put your old phone into the collection box next to the entrance in the foyer of the Biosphere Potsdam.
