Everything you need is provided in the kit - simply follow the instructions: press out the pre-cut parts, add the lenses and mirror to create an impressive, portable microscope. Awesome for examining garden mini-beasts, leaves, feathers and more – you’ll be amazed at what you can see with the 30x magnification.

The Build Your Own Microscope encourages kids to immerse themselves in the fun world of science and exploration. Popular with parents too, this innovative, STEM-inspired kit reduces screen time, and brings families together to create rich memories.

Using the focusing dials, kids can adjust the zoom to reduce or increase the detail of specimens they are examining. And the light source on a smart phone can be used to light up your object through the built-in periscope. There’s also is a choice of three trays for you to use to hold different types of specimens on the microscope table. Kids can remove the microscope lens tubes and place them in the handheld adaptor while they go on location to examine exciting specimens and objects.

This eco-friendly Microscope is made using sustainable cardboards and minimal plastics. Build Your Own’s company ethos is ‘Less plastic, paper fantastic!’. They’re incredibly passionate about being environmentally responsible in all that they do and respecting our planet.
