This talking microscope is full of neat facts and images. My kids are in awe at the different slides they can view. I'll admit that my husband and I have even spent lots of time with this microscope. Some images include the human eye, cross section of a pine needle, dental floss with plaque, table salt, newspaper print, and lots more. In learning mode, we can learn intersting facts about each slide. For instance, we learned that red blood cells have no nucleus. That's what gives them their famous shape. In quiz mode, questions are asked about each slide and you have the option to press the A, B, or C button to choose your answer.
A couple of example questions in Quiz Mode are:
What is something diatoms have in common with plants?
a) They photosynthesize
B) They are unicellular
C) They have leaves and stems
What are weevils known for?
A) damaging crops
B) burrowing into human or animal skin
c) eating pests
The slides are already in the microscope so there's no need to insert and remove them. That makes it handy so you don't have to keep track of them, but you also have to advance through if you want to see a specific slide. The "talker" that speaks out the facts and questions from the microscope is clear and easy to understand, although monotonous. The microscope requires 3 C batteries, which are not included. The GeoSafari Talking Electron Microscope has been used and played with almost daily in my home. The kids love it and I'll admit I do too. We've learned new things, been refreshed on others, and have been able to see fantastic up close images.
One person will win a GeoSafari Talking Electron Microscope.
