When I was in school, science was not usually my favorite subject. I loved history and English, instead. But I really enjoyed using microscopes to find out about the smallest of things. I am still intrigued by how parts fit together to make a whole. I’ve wondered about how to share that fascination with my children.
I think I may be getting a microscope for us in the near future. OpticsPlanet has launched www.microscopes.com, with microscopes for all, from kids to university scientist. They offer free shipping on orders over 29.95, and a No Hassle Holiday Return Policy.
I’m interested in a couple of the sets they offer. This 2-PC Fun Science Gift Package contains the tools we need to study astronomy *and* biology. The microscope and telescope, as well as the solarscope are included for just $119.99.
I also think this set looks good, and might be a bit more rugged, which is needful when you have little people. For $99.99, the 3-PC Magnify the World Science Gift Package includes a Carson Magnifier BL55, Audubon 4×30 Kids Binoculars, and Konus 300X Digital Toy Microscope 5022.
If you are not sure what you need , the gift finder is a great place to start narrowing down your choices and find the best gifts. They do truly have enough stuff there to overwhelm a rocket scientist, but they make it simple to find just what you need.
