For the past two years my oldest daughter, now 8, has been telling me she wants to be a scientist when she grows up. Between having a great science teacher that fosters the desire to learn and having a grandmother who was a science teacher, my daughter loves the idea of exploring and researching. For her most recent birthday this past summer, she asked for a microscope so she can have the proper tools that go along with her love of all things science.
We received My First Lab WOW (World of Wonder) Scope to check out, and as a science nerd myself, I’m impressed. I remember the first time in college biology I looked under a microscope and was fascinated by what I saw. Now my daughter can have that same “wow” experience when she examines 3D objects up close on this great starter-microscope for kids. The WOW Scope comes with everything you need for an introductory experience and beyond, with real magnification. Check out the features below of everything the WOW Scope has to offer:
- Real glass optics
- Interchangeable pairs of 10X and 25X eyepieces
- 20X and 50X total magnification
- Battery-powered (2 AA batteries – not included)
- Top and bottom duo-LED illumination can be used for ALL specimens, even prepared slides!
- Super light and portable!
A few samples come with the WOW Scope, like grains of sand, a feather, and an insect leg. It was interesting to see my 8 year old’s reaction to each item, as her initial reaction was that these items were fake. When I told her they were real, she was first grossed out, then immediately intrigued. I love the that WOW Scope fosters her interest in science and learning.
Along with the WOW Scope, we also received the Smartphone Inspector which connects to any smartphone and provides 60x magnification. This is great for on-the-go exploring!
Both items can be found at My First Lab as well as Amazon. The best part about the products from My First Lab is they have something for everyone at every price point. I was impressed at the quality of the WOW Scope and the excitement my kids had each time they wanted to check out something new under their microscope.
