Child Safety Warning

These microscopes include accessories for the preparation of slides and dissection of specimens. For this reason some of the parts included with these microscopes are VERY sharp. As a parent, you are expected to maintain supervision over your child's use of this microscope. The microscope itself is reasonably harmless. SOME OF THE ACCESSORIES ARE NOT. If you purchase these microscopes, you have agreed to assume your child's supervision. If you would not give your child a sharp knife, do not give him or her a scalpel to use without your monitoring its use.

Please note that the KonuStudy #5019 has accessories selected for few of the sharp parts. This might be the best choice where you child will be using the microscope without much adult supervision.

Three functions of the KonuScience (5020) Microscope

The KonusFirst microscope (5015) also has the viewer for group viewing

PLEASE NOTE: The viewers on these microscopes work quite well when the lamp at the bottom of the stage is used to full intensity. This works best in a slightly darkened room. The projectors require much more light than that. They require a high intensity desk lamp (not included) for the projection to work. For this reason, do not purchase these microscopes if the projection is an important feature to your use of the microscope.
