EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

The Smartphone Science kit turns a smartphone or tablet into a microscope. The kit includes a universal mount, microscope with LED light, filter adapter and four color filters. There is also a slide with three specimens.

The mount attaches to your device and the microscope fits into the adapter. You then use the camera app on your device as the microscope's viewer. The camera app can also be used to take a picture of the microscopic item so kids can store their experiments.

Is It Fun?

Kids can look at anything they hold their device to, and see it in microscopic detail.

Who It’s For

The Smartphone Science kit is for kids, ages 8 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

The kit comes with a booklet full of experiments for the microscope and filters.

The microscope uses the devices existing camera, and there is nothing to download. The microscope will only look as good as your camera's quality so the better your device's camera, the clearer your pictures will be. Holding the device steady will also result in clearer pictures.
