Build your own microscopes, telescopes, and binoculars with this unique optical construction kit. This innovative kit teaches young scientists how microscopes and telescopes work by letting them build these scopes from simple, reconfigurable parts. Discover first-hand how lenses bend light and learn how they can be combined together to make images larger and clearer for different applications. Build many types of scopes and learn how their various components function. Experiment with different lenses, different tube lengths, and different body configurations. Construct binoculars and a spotting scope. Examine three prepared slides under your microscope and prepare your own slides. Use the telescopes to view far away objects on Earth, and the craters on the moon. Build 28 different models with 147 building pieces. Full-color, 60-page experiment manual.
Magnify your mind! Young scientists can investigate everything from cells to crystals with this 48-piece microscope. The set includes all the tools kids need to create their own specimen slides and view them at up to 600x magnification.

A powerful 48-piece microscope set
Microscope offers 50x, 100x, 150x, 300x, and 600x magnifications
Create Working Electronic Circuits Snap Circuits Jr (SC-100) comes with over 30 components to create 101 different electronic projects. The pieces, which include snap wires, slide switches, an alarm circuit, a music integrated circuit, and a speaker, snap together easily on the included plastic grid--no soldering required. Each piece is numbered and color-coded to make identifying them easy. These components combine to create working circuit boards just like the ones found inside televisions, radios, and other electronic devices.View full product details
Speed, power, catapults, and collisions! Physics is full of action! Kids will have the 20 models in this introductory physics kit racing, rolling, flying, falling, crashing, balancing, and spinning around in 22 action-packed science experiments. After following step-by-step illustrated instructions to build each model, kids test the models to demonstrate and comprehend basic laws of mechanical physics. While building the models, young researchers learn about various topics in the fascinating world of mechanical physics and engineering. Start your physics adventures by building a balancing tightrope walker, a moving elevator, and a high-g astronaut training centrifuge to learn about forces, gravity, and weight. Learn how to measure forces by building a force meter.View full product details
