    Comments about Educational Insights Micropro Elite Geovision Precision Optic Microscope:

    I received this product from the company free to try out for my honest review. My children ages 7 to 13 absolutely love this microscope set. Even my older teenagers were enjoying looking at the slides the younger kids made. It's great as a starter microscope to get kids interested in the microscopic world around them. The kit comes in a nice carry box to keep everything together and all kinds of things to help kids make slides and use the microscope. It comes with 5 prepared slides to look at right our of the box, Onion bulb, broad bean leaf, Hydrilla leaf, apple, and pollen. It also comes with plenty of blank slides and slide covers to make your own. Also, the slides are plastic which makes me more comfortable with my younger kids making slides. Once we got the microscope going with batteries and the correct magnification, my kids ran around the house and made slides out of everything. Pizza and beeswax were very interesting magnified. Also, human hair, dog hair, cracker, salt, sugar, and so many other things. The light is plenty bright enough to see the things on the slides. Or if you are in a bright or sunny area, there is a mirror on the other side of the light that can be used instead. This kit also comes with a projector that you put on top of the microscope and it will project the image on a dark wall. I found that the light on the microscope was not bright enough to project the slide. But if I put my cell phone flashlight under it, it showed up very well. Also it comes with a stand that sits on top of the eyepiece so that you can take pictures of your images. It seemed to hold my cell phone to far away from the eyepiece to get a good image. We had better luck just holding the cell phone camera directly to the eyepiece and taking the picture. Even with those two issues we had, I still feel that this is a great microscope for kids to get interested in science.

      Comments about Educational Insights Micropro Elite Geovision Precision Optic Microscope:

      I received this product and my 12 year old was so excited to use it. It comes with 98 pieces. My daughter went and found a bug and other items to use in the slides. It did a really good job of magnifying the objects in the slides. A few of the slides did appear like they had scratches on them, but she was still able to see the items. We were able to get the projector to work. We needed to be in a dark room, so we opted for the bathroom. Overall this is a great product for someone interested in science. It is a good beginner microscope.

      Great for Upper Elementary kids

      Comments about Educational Insights Micropro Elite Geovision Precision Optic Microscope:

      This microscope is great for curious learners ages 8-12. It is easy to use and comes with prepared slides and extras to make your own. It also has specimen jars and a small, plastic magnifying glass. All products are sturdy, heavy weight plastic, including the tools. My 8 year old son put it together and had fun exploring the prepared slides and using it. Great for homeschoolers to play with.

        Got it for my 11 year old son and i'm the one who is enjoying it the most. unfortunatly, we wanted to 'pack and go'and the case was dysfunctional. i retuned to local store and they didn't have that particular scope. They didn't give raincheck or a date they MAY get another one. i had a great scope, just couldn't take it to grandmas.

                This micoscope is great. It has everything you could possibly need all neatly stored in its own carrying case. Both of my kids, age 7 and 9, can use the microscope with ease.

                  Compared to the Edu Science "Microscopes" this thing is a dream! Crystal clear focusing, multiple applications, lots of tools for use in slide preparation!

                  The only downside is that the only pre-prepared slides are a very small amount of plant matter. The Edu Science ones came with a wide variety of cool, hard to obtain items,but once again, you couldn't see through those "microscopes" so, what was the point?

                  Camera mount works like a charm, and the projector is really simple, but fun.

                  This is the definite one to have of everything currently carried but TRU.
