Grades K–6. Priced to fit any budget, this 2-in-1 microscope with 50 accessory pieces is an excellent beginner microscope for younger students. Two light sources allow for viewing both slides and solid objects, including coins, plants, stamps, insects, jewelry, and more.

This scope features capabilities that would normally require the use of 2 instruments--a basic biological scope to look at specimens on a slide (light shines from underneath) and a traditional stereo- or dissecting microscope to view solid objects at lower power (light shines down onto the specimen). The Duo-Scope easily handles either application! Cordless battery power makes it portable for field study.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an ideal tool for students to use with ease, since it is cordless and super light weight. The students were fascinated with the dual feature This is an ideal tool for students to use with ease, since it is cordless and super light weight. The students were fascinated with the duel feature of having both the compound microcope and stereo microscope!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great scope, excellent value This microscope makes a terrific gift for a child. It's easy to use, works with slides and objects both, and comes with stellar customer service. Our children began using this at ages 6 and 7 and continue to enjoy investigating both the prepared slides and things they find outdoors. We've watched creatures in pond water, looked up close at feathers, fish scales and other objects and generally used this microscope to enlarge our understanding of the natural world. I've also taken this into a classroom setting as a volunteer and the children that used it loved it. Do not buy junky "toy" microscopes for your child....I speak from experience when I say they are just frustrating. Get this one instead. When a light stopped working, I called the company and got a live person on the first try who figured out right away what was wrong and shipped me a new part. Love this microscope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 11 yr old daughter wanted a microscope for Christmas. I asked her science teacher for direction and it is a huge hit. The unit is much lighter than expected but it works great. She loves it and has been digging in the woods, the fridge, the pond to find things at which to look. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I am a trained microscopist and am accustomed to using high quality professional microscopes. I wanted to buy a beginner microscope for my niece and never thought I would find one with which I would be pleased. I was quite impressed by the quality of this product. The objective lenses are quite nice and allow for impressive imaging for a product in this price range. In addition, I was also impressed that the scope has both transmitted and reflective light capability. This is a wonderful beginner microscope for my 8 year old niece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase for home use for a curious kid We ordered this for my middle school son's science fair project. I am a microbiologist, so did not have high expectations for this microscope, just hopes it would suffice to get the project done. Boy, was I surprised! This is a fantastic and sturdy microscope. In addition, it also can be a stereoscope, which is pretty cool too. If your child(ren) show(s) any interest in microbiology, this is a purchase to strongly consider!
