Microscope Exhibit

Microscope Exhibit


The microscope exhibit highlights the real world of science while incorporating some child-proof slides and magnifying glasses for beginners. Science will be fun for all ages with this interactive gigantic microscope.

Take a look at some tiny organisms that are living with us every day, but never to be seen. Learn how a microscope can amplify a small image and to adjust the lenses based on the size of the sample. Come see our larger than life replica and play with real slides.
