Cells Under a Microscope
Featuring a forty-page science book and kit, kids will learn the fundamentals of staining onion cells, preparing a leaf cell, staining and viewing cheeks cells, identifying parts of the cell, and so much more! This kit includes a breakthrough clip-on microscope that lets you observe on a digital screen as you prepare a microscope slide step-by-step on the microscope stand. Step-by-step instructions lead a child successfully through each activity. Extend and enrich the fun and learning by utilizing the videos, animations, and wordplay that compliment the book on the ScienceWiz website.
These science kits stemmed from Dr. Penny Norman's volunteer work teaching science in her children's elementary schools and her ScienceWiz after school programs and summer camps. With initial development supported by grants from the National Science Foundation and the Franklin Foundation, each of their kits are created to teach fundamental scientific concepts to children through hands-on play.
Cells Under the Microscope recommended for ages 8+.
