We spent 26 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. Introducing children to the world of science from a young age is critical. It may even set them on a path toward success in one of the highly paid STEM fields. The microscopes for kids on our list are a fun and engaging way to get youngsters interested in experiments and observation, and we've included models suitable for everyone from preschoolers all the way up to high school students. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best microscope for kids on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

October 23, 2018: A little suspicious that the Omano model shares its activity book with an AmScope model, but both companies most likely sourced the book from a third party. As a category, models seem to increase in price as they increase in target age group, with a smaller, but undeniable corresponding increase in quality.
