  • Item #: 053861
    Retail: $0.00
    Rainbow Price: $0.90

    Concave slides are perfect for viewing living organisms. The single depression in the center of the 1"x 3" glass slide measures .5mm to .8 mm in depth, which allows for viewing without damaging or squashing the organism. They don't dry out as quickly as a regular slide because you are able to include more liquid with your specimen. The slides have rounded edges and are reusable.

    • - 10X wide field eyepiece with pointer, mounted at a 45 angle
    • - 360 rotatable head
    • - Revolving nosepiece with click stops
    • - 4X, 10X, and 40X(R) objectives, all 45mm, achromatic, parfocaled and parcentered
    • - Coaxial coarse and fine focus knobs

    This sturdy little LED-lighted pocket microscope is the perfect companion for the great outdoors or indoors! The 4" microscope fits into a sturdy base, but can be used without. Use the zoom to view small objects at 20X-40X which show up nice and bright with the LED lighting. Even 3-D objects look nice and sharp under the viewer! One of my favorite features is the button that controls the lighting you have to hold it in to turn on the light, ensuring that the light bulb isn't left on for hours and hours. Two plastic specimen slides and cover slips are included to begin your pond water investigations, and these slide right into the microscope base. Microscope uses three LR44 button cell batteries, included. ~ Jess

    Microscope activity books are great if you already have everything you need to start making your own slides, but what if you don't? That's why I like this kit. The experiment manual is solid enough to stand on its own - a rarity in most science kits today - and the kit includes everything you need to begin using the microscope, exploring prepared slides, and preparing and making your own slides. The full-color 48-page manual begins by explaining microscope use and care, as well as how to safely make thin slices from specimens using a scalpel or razor blade. Then young scientists are ready to start observing! The following sections focus on viewing cells of different types, including cheek cells, onion skin, onion cells affected by salt, egeria/elodea, various fruits and vegetables, starch from foodstuffs, hydra, pollen grains, salt and sugar crystals, insect wings, insect specimens, mushrooms, root hairs, watermelon water ducts, blades of grass, leaves, hair, nettle hairs, and feathers. Each section provides informational text about the subject viewed, detailed instructions on how to make and mount the specimen, tips on specimen-making techniques, and photos of photographed specimens under the microscope. Since the student will probably not be very proficient at preparing their own slides, several prepared slides are included as examples, and the more difficult-to-make specimens are saved for later in the book. The photos of example specimens are also helpful for beginners. Unlike many microscope kits, this one actually has a fairly decent microscope. It is constructed of metal and plastic microscope and has pretty good focusing ability. Features include: a monocular 10X eyepiece, 4X, 10X and 40X glass objective lenses (for 40X, 100X and 400X total magnification). The microscope includes two bright LED lights, one above and one below the stage. This kit would be a great choice for a microscope study, along with a science curriculum, or just for the interested student, especially if you are not planning on investing in a good-quality microscope in the future. Kit includes the experiment manual, microscope, blank slides, prepared slides, coverslips, tweezers, a dissection needle, a scalpel, a pipette, Petri dish with lid, stain, lens paper, blank labels for slides, and a dust cover for the microscope. Microscope requires 3 AA batteries (not included). - Jess

    Travel with Ms. Frizzle and her class through the land of microscopy with this lab kit. This kit includes the things that young researchers need to explore the world of tiny things – microscope, blank slides, cover slips, tweezers, collecting vial, 20 colorful experiment and instruction cards, prepared slides of fungi and algae, and a data notebook for recording your own scientific observations all packaged in a cool Magic School Bus-shaped box. The microscope operates on 2 AA batteries (not included) and is made of plastic with 100, 300 and 600x magnification. Although that sounds powerful, this is still a toy and doesn't give the quality and clarity of higher priced microscopes. I spent some time looking at the prepared slides and had some difficulty with the viewing on 600x but got a pretty good view with the 100 and 300x settings. Overall this is a good starter set for beginning to explore with Ms. Frizzle. - Donna
