Having fun with microscopes :)

My son Joel bought me a microscope a few years ago. I indicated I would like one as I had one as a child and found it fascinating. It gave me an interest in science and what things are made of.

Called SuperEyes, it can be purchased on Amazon or Ebay and ranges between around $10A to around $200A. It plugs into my computer via a USB.

It is easy to use although the (free) software is a bit temperamental – just need to be patient and persevere with it :). The results are worth it.The item on the base of the microscope (a succulent from my garden)  is photographed and saved to my computer.

I set up another blog called It’s a Small World . You may like to check it out!

  1. This is cool. I think this would be a great thing to have with kids. I think my granddaughter is a bit young right now but I could see playing around with it for myself. I’m going to check it out.

    • It is fairly strong and doesn’t involve glass slides. You could also use it outside if you have wi-fi. Have fun 🙂
