Children are naturally curious about the world around them. They have a million questions, are full of awe and wonder, and see things from their own unique perspective.
Science is the way to open your child’s world even further.
Teach them how to investigate and analyse. And with a quality microscope you can make the minuscule, HUGE.
The Dlite 1.3 Microscope is a great compact microscope. It has a built in adjustable light and comes with a small adjustable stand or can be held by hand. There are four focal tips included to help when not using the stand.
The microscope plugs into a computer via a USB cable and projects the images on the screen.
We’ve just begun exploring all that the software can do, but my son’s absolute favorite thing is capturing these enlarged images. They can be compared, edited and more!
Here’s the inside of his recently lost tooth. (Please excuse the dirty fingernails!)
This microscope is perfect for little hands and rather sturdy (thankfully!). There is a large toggle on the scope to adjust the focus.
My boys are always collecting things to investigate under the scope. I can see their wheels spinning as they begin to really see how things are made and how they work.
I think my favorite thing about this kit are the included sample specimens. They’re varied and interesting. My three year old loves the star fishs while my oldest is a fan of the lichen.
The world just became bigger AND smaller all at the same time!
