Disclosure: I received a Smartscope sample to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own.
My oldest daughter has always been a big fan of science. From an early age she was interesting in things that were different from girls her age. She loved her rock collecting projects for school and she loved going to the zoo to check out the snakes. On top of everything else, she used to love to watch the Mythbusters as they showed why certain things worked and others didn’t. Even as young as 6 she was asking if we could buy her a telescope and a microscope.
With just one click, your smart phone or tablet becomes a microscope! You can use your smart phone or tablet to explore the amazing world of microscopics with Smartscope! Explore water, sand, feathers, leaves, as well as insects from your own environment, up close and personal. The included poster offers more engaging objects to magnify, plus fun facts about each one. You’ll be able to scope out cool objects in minute detail, then email them to your friends! Includes removable light source, sliding object tray, as well as two levels of magnification.
Place the object under the Smartscope and activate the camera function on your smartphone as well as tablet. No app download needed. That’s all there is to it! And the beauty of the ‘Smartscope’ is that kids can carry it around with them, thanks to a travel bag which makes the kit ideal for outdoor use. By using the camera function on their smartphone or tablet, kids can share their ‘Smartscope‘ discoveries with friends as well as stream their finds directly to the television (with a proper streaming device). Discover the micro cosmos and make the invisible visible!
Kids Gain Practical Experience With The Smartscope
An effective teaching tool, this kit includes explanations that detail not only how to complete each experiment, but also how each one works. Many experiments also include background knowledge and an invitation to answer the question, “What Do You Think?” The booklet includes definitions of all included components as well as a glossary, so users can learn and understand what each part does.
