Need a microscope for your kids but feel overwhelmed by the choices and cost? Let us help! You can pick an affordable high school or college student microscope — or just a good basic educational microscope — for your kids. And if you’ve never used a microscope before, don’t worry! It’s not as hard as that textbook makes it seem. You’ll be amazed at the world of tiny details that a microscope brings to life!
Any of these microscopes provide excellent quality at low prices, so you can get the best classroom-quality features without hurting your budget! Most come with a lifetime warranty to ensure you’ll be able to use the same microscope with your kids for years to come.
For most students and families, we recommend the Home Microscope, ideal for students who are studying life science / biology in junior high and up. If you have a younger child who loves science, but you don’t want to make a longer-term investment, we recommend the Kids model, great for beginning to use a real scope. Or for an advanced student, chose an iris diaphragm and 1000x magnification to see even more detail.
Here's what one customer had to say: "We recently purchased the Home microscope. My son was amazed at the clarity & detail. He found it easy to use." —Melanie
