Embark on a guided journey through the microscopic world, revealing its hidden creatures and unseen structures with the new TK2 Scope. First, learn how to use the microscope and all of its parts. Next, become familiar with your scope by examining some prepared slides. Now, you are ready to take off on a guided investigation of plant and animal specimens that you gather and prepare yourself. This kit gives you the tools, knowledge, and skills you need to view virtually any specimen you can find.

The microscope is a dual light 40-, 100-, and 400-power metal and plastic microscope. The two battery-powered LED light sources allow for both the viewing of large or opaque objects lit from above and the viewing of thinly sliced or translucent specimens lit from below. It has a 10-power ocular lens; 4-, 10-, and 40-power objective lenses; and an aperture wheel. The lenses are all professional-quality optical glass. The microscope is durable and powerful, permitting years of continued observations.

The full-color, 48-page manual guides you through set-up, usage, and dozens of fascinating observations of biological specimens.

The best part about Thames and Kosmos kits are the detailed color instructions which guide you step by step through the experiments while educating you at the same time about the subject matter. These are simply the best science kits on the market and are a favorite in our household!
