We love telescopes and looking at the sky, but sometimes we need to come back down to earth. Microscopes are a great way to explore the (small) world around us. We've put together a great selection of basic bundles with prepared slides and specimens that will give you a whole new perspective. Use them to see how colour is printed on a flyer or a book cover, how the light plays on the wings of a fly, or examine the cellular structure of a blade of grass. Each of these bundles will give you a fantastic entry into this miniature space.
