Life Science has always been one of my favorite topics and as a former Science teacher, I want to make sure that I pass on my love of the subject to Riley. Now I may be a little biased in this opinion, but I don't think that the importance of Science can be stressed to children enough.
It is a subject which utilizes reading, writing, mathematics, deductive reasoning and creative thinking and teaches us the way our world works. A microscope is an essential scientific tool which opens up a whole new world of discovery for any child. Educational Insights offers a variety of high-quality microscopes and recently allowed me to review the MicroPro 48-Piece Microscope Set. Keep reading to learn more!
The MicroPro 48-Piece Microscope Set from Educational Insights helps young scientists investigate everything from cells to crystals. It's perfect for use in the classroom or at home because this 48-piece set includes all the tools kids need for clear, precise viewing of microscopic items. Study the cube-shaped crystal structure of common table salt or examine tiny microorganisms in a drop of pond water - there's a whole new world to discover! This set even includes three professionally prepared slides to study, just like a real scientist.
The MicroPro 48-Piece Microscope Set is designed for children ages 8 years old and up and requires 2 "AA" batteries (not included). The microscope itself is a very sturdy and high quality piece of equipment which offers the following specifications:
- 10X and 20X magnifying glass eye pieces
- Rotating 3-lens turret design with 50X, 100X, 150X, 300X and 600X magnifications
- Rotating mirror/viewing light
- Rack and pinion focusing
- Durable die-cast metal frame
- Tilts for easy viewing
- Wide, stable base
The MicroPro microscope has the same magnification properties as the super expensive ones the school used to provide my students when I taught Science. Also, the light source works well and since it relies on batteries, your child can easily use the MicroPro anywhere. I was also impressed with the other official scientific tools included in this set, such as:
- Stirring rod
- Test tube with cap
- Petri dish
- 3 Specimen vials
- 3 Prepared slides
- 8 Blank slides and labels
- 16 Slide covers
If you've been searching for a high-quality and affordable microscope set for your budding scientist, then I highly recommend the MicroPro 48-Piece Microscope Set from Educational Insights. Give your child the proper tools to satisfy their curiosity about the world around them with this well-made microscope set!

I'm a former 7th grade Science teacher turned stay-at-home mom that lives in Houston, Texas. I am married to my college sweetheart and have a beautiful daughter named Riley, who definitely keeps me on my toes! I am also involved in starting a small business which would both manufacture and sell an invention that I've patented, called Toothpaste 2 Go. I love interacting with my readers and hope to learn as much about you as you learn about me!
