Most microscopes for children are toys that break easily, have cheap plastic lenses, and are more frustrating than educational...This isn't one of them! The Swift GH Microscope is a simple yet sophisticated tool that gives children, parents and educators the perfect beginners microscope. We packaged the microscope with a quality selection of biology, geology and physical science specimens. Every specimen and preplanned activity in the 43 page guidebook is designed to keep children interested in the process of discovery. Comes standard with 2.5x objective lens, which gives a total magnification power of 25x. Kit includes; Metal Microscope with optical glass lenses, Clear Stage, Black/White Reversable Stage, Dust Cover, 18 Specimens in poly bags, Live Triops, Plexiglass Bugbox, Live Well Slide & Eyedropper, and Activity Book.
