Explore the microscopic world with this high-quality kid’s microscope kit from National Geographic! Includes a specially designed microscope and complete STEM lab kit they’ll absolutely love. With this kit, kids can explore the microscopic world with incredible detail!
The star of the show is this specially-designed microscope for kids. We studied what worked with other microscopes and what didn’t, and developed one of the easiest microscopes for kids to use. The soft-touch eyepiece is gentle on skin and the large focus knobs are easy for little hands to turn. When focusing, the slide platform moves up and down to help keep the entire microscope more stable and to ensure the specimen remains in the perfect viewing position. The slide storage case integrates into the base of the microscope and a wide-footed base helps keep the microscope firmly in place. Kids can choose from 40x, 100x, or 400x magnification by moving the adjustment lever, and they can switch between an upper light and lower light with the flip of a switch on the back.
Kids will be able to: Easily use the microscope to view a wide range of specimens; Explore the prepared plant slides, which include onion epidermis, holly leaf, celery leaf, sunflower root, pine pollen, and dandelion seed; Create their own slides using the 6 blank plastic slides and covers in the kit; Investigate the textures of a geode, pyrite, green fluorite, blue calcite, rose quartz, and chevron amethyst; Complete science experiment activities in the fun and interactive lab guide, and have a deeper understanding of the microscopic world around them.
