Asda have a Celestron Microscope Starter Kit on offer at £14 instead of £27, giving you a £13 saving and a summer full of entertained kids, if memory of the microscope we had as kids serves. Interestingly, the same kit at Amazon is £50!
Unless we look hard enough, we can easily miss the tiny creatures and details that surround us and often play an important in our daily lives. For example, the crystals that make up the rocks that form the ground beneath out feet and in which the foundations of our homes stand, or the fine hairs on a honey bee that can help to carry pollen in order to help pollinate our flowers and essential food crops. I love this introduction of the product. It's so poetic!
