Mole cricket leg; 7. Cockroach leg; 8. Water beetle leg; 9. Locust leg; 10. Honey bee leg; 11. Honey bee wing; 12. Mosquito antenna
  • For kids above 6 years old and able to handle glass slides. The edges of glass slides are chamfered to prevent cuts. – Samples are clearly labeled and glass slides come fitted in a plastic slide container
  • Comes with 3 color post cards demonstrating functions of insect parts and questions to aid fact finding on beetles.
  • Comes with 1 real beetle specimen. The actual type of beetle received varies. Students can observe the specimen directly under microscope or use it to prepare additional slides (preparation tools NOT included).
  • Dimension of glass slides: 7.5 x 2.5cm (standard size)
  • Dimension of plastic slide box: 8 x 6 x 3.2cm
  • Package includes: 12x prepared slides in plastic container, 3x postcards, 1x beetle specimen (type varies)
  • Product Features

    • MOUTHPART, LEG, WING, ANTENNA: The 12 slides are carefully selected to demonstrate the interesting parts of different insects that children can appreciate. For instance, the digging leg of a cricket is distinctly different from the swimming leg of a water beetle because of their different functions. By observing the slides, children learn to appreciate different shapes and structures of insect and relate them to how the insect moves or eats.
    • OBSERVE, THINK, AND CONCLUDE: The set is also designed to instill scientific thinking to children. Firstly, the child is able to observe the parts. Then with the aid of postcards, the kid can consider how the insect uses the body parts. And finally, using the real beetle specimen, the kid can apply what he or she has learnt to draw conclusions about the beetle’s life.
    • CLEAR OPTICAL GLASS SLIDES: Samples are professionally prepared on optical glass slides for clear viewing. Recommended for children above 6 years of age.

    Microscopes are instruments used to enhance the resolution of an object or image. Types include compound, stereo, or digital. Compound microscopes use a compound optical system with an objective lens and an eyepiece. Stereo microscopes show object depth in a three-dimensional image. Digital microscopes are used to display an image on a monitor, rather than looking through a lens. Microscopes can have monocular (one), binocular (two), or trinocular (three) eyepieces, with varying magnification abilities. Magnification ability refers to the size of an image. Resolution, also known as resolvant power, refers to the clarity of the image. The interaction between field of view (FOV), numerical aperture (NA), and working distance (WD) determines resolution. Microscopes can control magnification through a fixed focus, or through a range of adjustments. They can also utilize LED, fluorescent, and mirror light sources to help control viewing capabilities. Microscopes are widely used in education, lab research, biology, metallurgy, engineering, chemistry, manufacturing, and in the medical, forensic science, and veterinary industries.

    United Scope manufactures microscopy equipment and accessories under the brand name AmScope. The company, founded in 1996, is headquartered in Irvine, CA.
