By Thames & Kosmos
With this educational Scope Constructor science kit, you and your kids can learn how lenses, telescopes, and microscopes work by bending light while building your own microscopes, telescopes, and binoculars! Young scientists will learn how microscopes and telescopes work by building them from simple, reconfigurable parts. You and your children will discover first-hand how lenses bend light and how they can be combined together to make images larger and clearer. Build 28 different models and experiments with different lenses, tube lengths, and body configurations. You can also examine the three provided slides under your own microscope. Includes 148 building pieces and a 60-page, full-color manual. For ages 8 and up.
