STEREO MICROSCOPES (also called dissecting microscopes) are really two compound microscopes which focus on the same point from slightly different angles. As opposed to compound microscopes, the image is upright and laterally correct (not upside down and backwards).
Learn about the human body by doing experiments with your five senses that show you how your body works. By exploring the external aspects of your body with hands-on experiments, you can learn a lot about the inside anatomy of the body.
Thames & Kosmos TK2 Scope 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.
Learn about the biology of reproduction, the components of cells, and how chromosomes are combined and copied. Assemble a model to see the elegant double-stranded helical structure of DNA. Then crack the genetic code and find out how the different parts, called nucleotides, fit together.
The beautifully illustrated experiment manual guides you through observations of many living specimens found in and around your home: onion cells, pond water, chloroplasts, plant stem cross sections, microorganisms, mouth cells, meat cells, different types of hair and fur, dust mites, bugs, pollen in honey, and much more.
Become a science sleuth as you practice the science of fingerprint detection and collection. Collect fingerprints by dusting them with black powder and lifting them with clear stickers. Design a fingerprint file card and take prints from your friends and family.
Looking at little things—things too small to see with the naked eye—can be big fun. It’s certainly smart science, and award-winning authors Shar Levine and Leslie Johnstone are here to show kids the basics of creating their own professional-quality slides and using their own microscopes.
Ant Jungle was designed to highlight the amazing abilities of tiny but extraordinary creatures - ants! Watch as they lift, carry, and build their colony; wrestle to carry their food home; and rush to the surface when the colony is in danger! Ants make great pets; they are clean, easy to keep, and cost next to nothing to feed.
