    There are many benefits of introducing your children to a microscope:

    • Microscopes can enhance your child’s curiosity, allowing them to interact with the world around them. It also teaches them how scientists and professionals make sense of the environment.
    • This activity may encourage your children to spend more time outdoors, collecting samples to view on their microscope. Your child can find almost anything to examine with our fifty-pack of blank slides and cover slips.
    • When kids use microscopes, it also improves their patience in willingness to adjust the knobs until they get the clearest display. With some of our microscopes going to 1000x, this will keep them busy for a long time.
