Frequently Asked Questions

Can all ages use this?

Yes, it is designed for all ages! Each microscope is specifically designed and tested to be shatterproof to make sure you and your children are safe. The glass components are sheltered with high quality ABS plastic to protect the eyes.

 

It is recommended that children are supervised during use.

What is included with the purchase of a microscope?

Every microscope purchase includes a STEMKids portable microscope and a microscope slide.

Are microscope slides required to use this?

No! In fact, it is specifically designed to be used WITHOUT microscope slides (unlike any other microscope on the market today). Simply point in the area of interest and view!

If you wish to use microscope slides, then each portable microscope comes with a viewable adapter. We also sell pre-prepared microscope slides for those that want to view insects without the hassle or danger of collecting them!

Is it hard to use?

Both kids and adults can operate the microscope with a bit of practice! We find that it takes no more than 5 minutes for people as young as four to learn!

It does have a bit of a learning curve. For those that are having trouble, we have a quick-and-easy guide on our website https://thestemkids.com/pages/how-do-i-use-my-microscope.

Do you offer multiple colors?

We only offer one color at the moment. Our newest edition features the popular blue color, but if you have any color recommendations, please let us know!

Where are you based?

We are based in Bluffdale, Utah. We are currently serving 4 different countries: United States, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia.
