My First Lab Duo-Scope Microscope + #Giveaway

Disclosure: My contributor received the following for review. All opinions are her own.

As a stay-at-home mom who was formerly a biologist, I was beyond excited to have my kids try the My First Lab Duo-Scope Microscope. I wanted to expose them to the world of science that I know and encourage them to look at everyday things with a new interest. My First Lab Duo-Scope Microscope seemed like it would be a great tool to start them off on their science adventure. And, it did not disappoint!



The scope came with everything that we needed in order to get started quickly: plain and prepared slides, cover glass, a plastic dropper, stains, lens paper, forceps, plastic tubes and a petri dish. It was great that the microscope had lights shining from either the top or bottom. This expanded the range of items that we could look at. We used it as a compound microscope for the prepared slides. Our favorite was the Paramecium. When we switched it to the dissecting stereo microscope mode, the kids immediately went around the house searching for items to look at under the microscope.




After some simple instructions and words of precaution, my kids were able to use the microscope on their own. They were amazed that something so ordinary, like a piece of paper, would be so different when magnified. It was nice that the microscope is lightweight and portable because both of my kids wanted to explore the world of bugs and nature outside. I love that they are so curious about nature, but I’m so glad that we didn’t have to bring dirt and bugs inside my house!



My First Lab Duo-Scope Microscope was truly one of the best new things that we have introduced to our household in a long time. It is something that my kids can use on their own to explore the world around them. But, it is also something that I can do with them. I can ask them questions about what they see and why they think it is that way. My kids are learning and having fun at the same time. They may not end up being a biologist like me, but I’m so thrilled that they are developing the ability to see the world in a different light and to question what’s in front of them. As more and more schools are now adapting the STEM program, the My First Lab Duo-Scope Microscope is wonderful to have at home so that we can reinforce what they are learning at school.
