I have had the opportunity to test out the MicroPro 48 Piece Microscope.
Educational Insights describes the MicroPro 48 Piece Microscope Set as follows:
“MicroPro 48-piece Microscope Set 50x, 100x, 150x, 300x, and 600x magnifications With the GeoSafari MicroPro, young scientists can investigate everything from cells to crystals! Perfect for individual or classroom use, the glass eyepieces and power settingfrom 50x to 600x provide users with superior precision viewing. The built-in light and rack and pinion focusing help deliver bright, clear images. The 48-piece kit has professionally prepared slides and everything users need to make their own specimen slides. Not a toy, but a scientific instrument, the GeoVision MicroPro includes high-quality components and features that make it appropriate for science learning at any age.”
I have to agree that this is an amazing educational and extremely fun item to have for just about any age. I used our Microscope Set with our 4 and 9 year old. We had an amazing time. We looked at the prepared slides that the Microscope came with. We also made our own slides and looked at salt, hair, skin, tea tree oil and items we brought back from a trip to our local pond including the pond water. The kids thought it was amazing and are always wanting to look at everything under the Microscope.
It is really amazing to see a 4 year old already know how to use a Microscope and to be so excited to collect things for looking at under the Microscope. What great way to help encourage little ones to love learning.
