Meade Children's 28-piece Starter's Microscope Kit - 08019 Product Info

Meade Child's 28-piece Microscope kit is an educational experience for children who love to learn as they play. Meade Kids 28-piece microscope Kit is designed to bring hours of enjoyment, wonder, and just plain fun. This laboratory set comes with a Meade microscope and a full collection of Meade Microscope accessories, which help your child discover the hidden microscopic world around him or her. The microscope features a functioning Meade 900x model microscope with three turret mounted objective lenses (for magnifications of 100x, 400x and 900x), a tough plastic body to reduce weight and survive rough use, a single focus knob, and a specimen stage with two built-in stage clips. This meade microscope uses a mirror and ambient lighting with an assist from a small built-in light source which uses 2 AA batteries (not supplied). In addition to the microscope, you also get prepared and blank plastic slides, hard carry case and more.

Rotate the color filter underneath the stage in order to see how the different colors can enhance the image of your specimen. Your Meade laboratory Microscope set comes supplied with sea salt, brine shrimp eggs which will stay alive for up to five years, and a shrimp hatchery. Have your child hatch and grow the shrimp eggs into mature shrimp which he or she can use to feed the fish in your aquarium. Use the slides to create your own experiments. The included easy-to-understand instruction manual for this Meade Microscopes guides you through all the steps you will need in order to open up the unseen world. It even contains a few easy-to-start with experiments. Enter the world of microscopic animals with the Life under Glass experiment. And after you're done, don't forget to put away all your materials in the included hard-carry case.
