Product Description

Discover the science of living things with this complete introductory microscope kit. The beautifully illustrated experiment manual guides you through observations of many living specimens found in and around your home: onion cells, pond water, chloroplasts, plant stem cross sections, microorganisms, mouth cells, meat cells, different types of hair and fur, dust mites, bugs, pollen in honey, and much more.

See how an onion cell shrivels and how an earthworm wiggles. Analyze the differences between the hair on your head and the sheep's hair in your wool sweater.

The kit includes three prepared specimens on a slide, four blank slides, cover slips, tweezers, needle, section slicing tool, and vial. Learn how to use these tools to prepare slides and how to use the microscope to examine them. Investigate how the lenses in a microscope bend light to magnify images.

The ocular lens, or eyepiece lens, of the microscope has an adjustable 12x to 18x magnification power. When combined with the three objective lenses, this results in a total magnification power of 96x to 750x. It has a battery-powered light and a mirror to light up the specimens. The full-color, 32-page manual covers microscope setup, usage, and many fascinating observations of biological specimens.

Microscope while not the most powerful, does the trick and the experiments are aimed at youngsters with a bit of curiosity in science. Invites more investigation of the world around them while making the user more aware of how to conduct experiments and set hypothesis. Will help invigorate even older people who are interested.

Right out of the box stuff was broken, glass slides and the slips. The batteries go in the bottom under the rubber seal but there is no on/off switch. You either use the light or rotate light down to use mirror...which turns light off. Very flimsy and one slide clip was stripped.

    Bad purchase

    By Scoot

    from Idaho

    Comments about Thames & Kosmos Kids First Biology Lab:

    Does not have an on/off switch so you have to put in batteries every time it turns on/off. Hard to focus on anything because it is so flimsy and made cheaply. The three different lenses zoom in almost the same and look barely different from each other when examining something in the microscope. Save your money, this wasn't worth it.
