What It Is
The Microscope Set is everything kids need to set up their own beginning science lab. It includes an eight-inch microscope with 100-900 power magnification on a zoom lens and a mirror, a light, and all the accessories kids need: slides, slide covers, tweezers, collecting vials, and more. There are two prepared slides and sample animal fibers to look at. Kids can look at drops of water, slices of onion, or any other basic household items they may find. Of course, those are not included in the set. The instruction manual has important information on the care and use of the microscope as well as an introduction to the microscopic world around kids. After that, though, kids are on their own, and the fun and discovery is all up to them.
Why It’s Fun
This is an exceptionally well-designed kit, and it's a great idea for budding scientists. The resolution of the microscope is sharp, and while this is not a professional or academic microscope, kids can still do a lot with it. For the science-minded and the curious, this is everything they need to get started.
Who It’s For
The Microscope Set is for ages 10 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
This set does include a sharp needle, scalpel, and slicer, so kids will need to be careful and attentive when using this set.
