Presently the basic types of microscopes for learning are monocular biologic and stereoscopic devices. They are similar in possessing rather good technical parameters along with having a reasonable price, which is very important in this case. However, they have some differences due to peculiarities of their construction. For instance, a biologic monocular microscope is particularly good for examining small objects and specially prepared micro slides. A stereoscopic one, in its turn, has the advantage of better macro objects' representation. At the same time, the image will be three-dimensional, which is more common for a human eye.
Apart from that, working with a monocular model has its peculiarities. In this case, preliminary preparation of the specimen is very often needed, which takes much time and requires special equipment, including specimen tables, tweezers, blades, coloring substances and so on. In the process of working the pupils will get the idea of how meticulous and complex research can be, and how carefully one should do it in order to get the appropriate result.
It is also necessary to take note of the fact that safe work with this equipment requires certain attention and effort, as mistuning of this device can harm your eyesight, and this is particularly true for children. Stereoscopic kids microscopes are especially dangerous in this case, as precise adjustment of interpupillary distance is required for their normal work.
