Teach your child about the history of microscopes, proper slide preparation, biology and more with National Geographic's Dual Microscope Science Kit. This is a real microscope, not a toy, featuring high-quality glass optics and powerful LED lights that illuminate slides from below and 3D objects from above. In addition to prepared slides and a guide for use, the kit includes everything you need for an experiment with brine shrimp, in which students observe the life cycle of tiny ocean creatures.
The kit includes two sets of optical glass lenses providing 20x and 50x magnification, 10 prepared slides with a range of biological specimens, a slide storage box, 10 blank slides, 10 slide covers, 10 slide labels, brine shrimp eggs, a brine shrimp hatchery station, tweezers and an eye dropper for slide prep, a Petri dish for plant labs, a mini geode, operating instructions, and a fascinating Microscopes Learning Guide.
