Single Magnification Field Microscope (Mini/Binni)
I'm the only microscope in the world that a child should ever own. I am not difficult to use like all those toy microscopes, I'm the real thing! You can put anything you want on my stage and explore. I will wow you every time you look inside the eyepieces. I am tough and easy to use with an efficient LED light that runs off 2 AA batteries.

Field Microscope: Using two eye pieces, this microscope allows the viewer to see the image with both eyes allowing normal 3D viewing that looks larger than life. Importantly, the eyepieces pivot and collapse to accommodate the eye spacing width for young children. They also spread wide enough for adults to comfortably view samples also.
Magnification: 20x total magnification (10x Eyepiece, 2x objective). STEMTaught chose this magnification for its forgiving focal length. Young viewers will easily be able to focus in on the microscopic world. This scope is most appropriate for bringing breathtaking detail to viewing objects that you are able to see with your eye, like pollen anthers, leaf stomata, aphids and other tiny insects, grains of sand, and textile weave.
Lighting: Top lighting (LED): best for viewing the surface of three dimensional objects.

- (1) microscope field backpack (choose boy or girl print)

- (3) test tubes for field sample collecting
