The TK2 scope is here to take you on a guided journey through the microscopic world, revealing its hidden creatures and unseen structures. First things first: You’ll learn how to use the microscope and all of its parts. Use the prepared slides to become familiar with using your scope for close-up viewing. Now, you’re ready to take off on a guided investigation of plant and animal specimens that you gather and prepare yourself. This kit gives you the tools, knowledge, and skills you need to view virtually any specimen you can find.
This durable and powerful microscope is a dual light 40/100/400X metal and plastic microscope. The two battery-powered LED light sources allow for both the viewing of large or opaque objects lit from above and the viewing of thinly sliced or translucent specimens lit from below. It has a 10X ocular lens; 4/10/40X objective lenses made with professional-quality optical glass; and an aperture wheel.

National Geographic is home to a thoughtful selection of educational kids toys, games, activity kits, books, and more that engage young minds and foster a lifetime of discovery through fun and hands-on learning. The leading concept in 21st-century education is STEMscience, technology, engineering, and mathematics. It’s a cross-disciplinary approach to learning that entrepreneurs and educators believe is key to a healthy innovation economy. At National Geographic we believe that art and design also play a vital role in exploration, so we count ourselves among those who take a broader view: from STEM to STEAM.
We’re proud to have been supporters of STEAM learning since long before the acronym was invented. Anyone who has watched a child open a present only to set the gift aside and play with the box knows that kids have an innate curiosity and desire to explore and understand their world. National Geographic explorers never lose that curiosity, and it has lead to some of the most remarkable discoveries in the last 125 years.
