Maker Kit: Microscope

I purchased a cheap microscope for use in a snow science program - I wanted the kids to be able to look at snowflakes. I put it in a maker kit afterwards for people to check out but it didn't last very long. Sad.

However, it was so popular I felt it was worth purchasing again and so I bought a second microscope to replace it. I bought the AMSCOPE-KIDS Beginner Microscope Kit on Amazon for about $40.

I updated the kit so the circulation staff doesn't have to check every single slide and tiny piece (there are over 60) - they just make sure the microscope is there and we trust our patrons for the rest. I cleaned out the kit and put better pictures on it.
