Making New Discoveries-
Discovery Channel Microscope Review
Christmas has come early at our house this year- we have been sent a Discovery Channel 150x Microscope to test and have been having loads of fun investigating with it.
It is really easy to set up and focus and comes with two pre-loaded slides so you can get straight on and start discovering. We have been looking at wings on the pre-loaded slides and have been having fun using the tools to collect our own specimens- it includes tweezers, vials, a magnifying glass and a magnifying petri dish so we have collected and cut up leaves and flowers to examine and have looked at nails and hair under the microscope which come out really well.
The microscope can be set up to three different levels of magnification and is also lit up. It is for age 8+ and it is ideal for any child around 7 upwards who likes science or enjoys studying nature but it is straight forward enough that Lottie who is 4 has been able to go ahead and use it without too much help and whilst we wouldn't recommend bashing this type of equipment around we can also tell you that Lottie took the microscope in to school and shared it with her Reception class who all had a look and it came home none the worse for it's outing!
We really liked this product and highly recommend it as a great Christmas gift. If you would like to find out more you can visit the Trends UK website here
