Build your own microscopes, telescopes, and binoculars!

Young scientists learn how microscopes and telescopes work by building them from simple, reconfigurable parts!

First, kids learn how lenses bend light and can be combined to make images larger and clearer for different applications.

Then they experiment with different lenses, different tube lengths, and different body configurations to build magnifiers, binoculars, field scopes, microscopes, and telescopes.

Twenty-eight models can be built following the detailed guide book. After that, kids come up with their own.

Along the way, kids create slides and view them under their microscope. Their binoculars are used to discover details from a distance. They use the telescope they created themselves to view far, far away objects on Earth - and even the craters on the moon!

Want to really see something? Create something amazing with Scope Constructor!
