Usborne Science and Experiments, "The World of Microscope" Book, 48 pp
Usborne Science and Experiments presents, The World of the Microscope, A Practical Introduction with Projects and Activities. Without reading like a text book, The World of the Microscope investigates the enormous variety of objects too small for the eye to see, from insects to microchip circuits. Step-by-step diagrams show how to get the best from a microscope and how to make and keep slides. The book covers different types of microscopes from magnifying glasses to electron microscopes, and there are plenty of exciting suggestions for projects which reveal the incredible detail of everyday objects. The book also contains a section on the use of microscopes in science and industry. This book makes a wonderful gift for children up to 14 years old, although we know many adults that enjoy it as well!
