This unique optical construction kit lets you build your own microscopes, telescopes, and binoculars. Young scientists will get the scoop on how microscopes and telescopes work by building their own out of simple, reconfigurable parts.
Discover how lenses bend light, and how combining lenses can make images larger and clearer, depending on your need. Experiment with different lenses, different tube lengths, and different body configurations. Learn how arranging the same basic parts in different ways creates entirely different kinds of optical tools.
Construct binoculars and a spotting scope. Examine three prepared slides under a microscope and prepare your own slides. Use the telescopes to view far-away objects on Earth, and the craters on the moon.
For ages 8 and up. Full-color, 60-page experiment manual. 147 building pieces; 28 models.
MY 9 YEAR OLD GRANDSON HAS MADE A TELESCOPE AND A MICROSCOPE AND USED BOTH TO BEGIN AN EXPLORATION OF THE STARS AND HIS WATER. HE IS THRILLED AND VERY ENTHUASTIC ABOUT THIS PRODUCT. HE HAS EVEN STOPPED PLAYING COMPUTER GAMES.
