New from Thames & Kosmos, the experiment kit your young inventor has been waiting for!
This comprehensive, all inclusive science kit teaches ambitious kids all about how different types of scopes work as they assemble microscopes, telescopes, binoculars and more from simple, reconfigurable parts.Inquisitive kids will learn first-hand how lenses bend light and how they can be combined together to makes images larger and clearer with eight Lens Test and four Magnifier experiments.
Assemble binoculars and different types of field scopes, telescopes and microscopes to understand how their various components function. Experiment with different lenses, different tube lengths, and different body configurations.
Budding explorers can build a working handheld 4x, 8x or 15x field scope, or an 8x or 15x field telescope with a long optical tube. Or even a pair of binoculars!
Aspiring astronomers can construct a working 4x telescope with a short optical tube, a 10x telescope with a short or long optical tube, or a 15x telescope with a long optical tube.
Budding biologists will be eager to put together a low or medium power handheld microscope, or medium or high power desktop microscopes. Working desktop microscopes feature magnification of 25x, 40x, 50x or even 80x!
Use the microscopes to examine three prepared slides, or prepare your own slides with the specimens, slides, and slips included.
You can build 28 different models with 147 building pieces. A 60-page full color manual provides step by step illustrated instructions and lots of scientific explanations in a kid-friendly format.
The innovative 128-piece Scope Constructor kit is perfect for hands-on learners and curious kids who love science!
For ages 10+.
