Mega Cool Microscope

I've been reviewing The Discovery Kids Macro Microscope. It's a microscope with a 10x, 30x, and 40x zoom, and two light settings which allow to you see microscopic organisms the human eye can't normally see. I like the fact that you have 3 lenses to choose from and zoom in on your subject, depending on it's size.

This microscope comes with cells and organisms to look at as well as brine shrimp eggs that you can grow and observe from the time they hatch. It also includes materials to make your own slides out of household items. I made a slide out of a tomato and got to see it's cells up close. Pretty cool!

If you're into science like I am, you will love this microscope. It is available at The Discovery Store ($79.95). Or enter to win here!
