Science Museum Portable Pocket Microscope | Mini Pocket-sized Microscope

Directly from the highly regarded Science Museum, this addictive Pocket Microscope will have you looking at the world around you in a completely new and exciting way. Specifically designed to be pocket-sized and easily portable, exploration is the name of the game, allowing you to view with clarity all the curiosities too small to see with the naked eye. Explore new microscopic worlds waiting to be discovered with the aid of the pocket microscope’s powerful lens, using the zoom function and LED lighting to illuminate your specimens and see in detail the make-up of objects you find.

Whether for a budding young scientist or even us adults, the Portable Microscope encourages curious and inquisitive minds to seize and pursue questions about the smaller, tinier in fact, environments around them in everyday life. Although small, the portable microscope is powerful - with magnification from 20x up to a maximum of 40x, and has a built in wrist strap to avoid any unwelcome drops. It comes with 2 slides included for your use, and a specimen slide with three different synthetic fibre samples, which provides some immediate investigatory work to be undertaken and get you started on the path to a possible future Nobel Prize!

The science of investigating small objects, or ‘microscopy’, has been around for hundreds of years, but there are always new discoveries to be made, and the Pocket Microscope can be your young scientists’ route into all the action… the fun is in the knowing!

Please note:
LED light requires 3 x AG13 batteries (included).
