Kids with an interest in assembling their own DIY microscope will delight in the newest Build Your Own kit, which simply slots together and requires no glue. The kit includes a series of pre-cut parts that can be pieced together with the lenses and mirror to create a fully functioning microscope that can be used to examine objects at 30x magnification.
As well as supporting inquiry at home, the BYO Microscope Kit also includes a detachable, handheld adapter that can be taken on the go with the lens tubes. The kit comes with everything needed for assembly, as well as specimen trays and more to support STEM learning. Since the DIY microscope is constructed out of cardboard, it is not only affordable but also eco-friendly too.
