Exploring with a Microscope Lab

Students explore the microworld of plants, animals and microbes using microscope slides that they safely prepare themselves using the included hand-held microtome, specimens and reagents.  They also construct their own water drop microscope to view a variety of microlife forms which come to life from a special dry pond mix.  The class also learns about new and exciting microscope-imaging techniques such as dark field illumination and polarizing light.

Your students will:

  • Construct a water lens card microscope
  • Learn how to use a compound microscope
  • Learn how to determine magnification and size
  • Develop skills in slide preparation and imaging techniques

Includes enough materials for a class size of 40 students.  Recommended for students in grades 5 through 8.  Manufactured by Neo/SCI.
