IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#Microscope--AmScope, the #1 online store for premium-quality microscopes and accessories, today announced the launch of the IQCrew by AmScope 120X – 1200X Kid’s 85+ piece Premium Microscope, Color Camera and Interactive Kid’s Friendly Software Kit. Part of IQCrew’s Early Explorer Series, the AmScope Kids Premium Microscope is the first combination microscope, digital camera and software kit specifically designed to improve a child’s science and computer skills at the same time.
Priced at under $100, the kit includes exclusive patent pending, kid-friendly software designed by engineers and teachers. Children ages 8 and older can easily connect the microscope to a computer and edit live images of specimens within seconds. The one-of-a-kind microscope and camera system works by allowing children to view samples through the high-quality eyepiece, or on a PC or MAC by removing the eyepiece, inserting the full color digital camera into the eyepiece tube and then connecting to a computer.
“Microscopes are an essential tool of any science classroom, and as teachers, children and parents are all gearing up for the most unusual school year on record, the AmScope Kids Premium Microscope provides a hands-on STEM activity that can be easily integrated into any e-learning or homeschooling experience,” said Larry Marmon, AmScope CEO. “We’re proud to offer this premium product at an affordable price point to enhance and support cognitive development.”
The software contains a microscope ‘how-to’ section, sample specimen library, a library for new images and an interactive real-time specimen image editing page. With the editing tools, children can put notes on an image, crop it, add stamps and save selections or whole images to send to a relative or friend, or even include in a school report. The upgraded all-metal frame microscope has high quality optics and multiple magnification settings to make viewing easy, two light sources and color filters. The 85+ piece kit also contains experiment ideas, blank and prepared slides and tools to prepare experiments in a durable hard plastic carrying case.
The full product description with a list of all items included in the kit can be found on AmScope’s website. The AmScope Kids Premium Microscope is available for purchase directly on the website.
