Science Education


Is there someone in your home who wants to learn more about the stars, constellations, the planets in our solar system and other celestial objects? Visiting a university observatory is a nice option if you live nearby and they offer public hours, but having your own telescope is even better. Turn your deck, or balcony into your own private observatory and study the night sky in private, whenever you like. Choose a portable model and take it with you on your next trip to the cottage or camping and you’ll discover just how awe inspiring the universe can be.


When it’s time to expand their horizons by zooming in on the tiniest details of organisms and objects, high school and university students who have access to their own microscope are free to explore on their own time instead of being tied to a classroom. A microscope is the best way to see what’s hidden to the naked eye—the building blocks of science and nature. Technological advances mean choices between traditional monocular and binocular models, and a new generation of high powereddigital microscopes, but they all serve as an excellent tool for helping to understand what is otherwise invisible.

Microscope Slides and Accessories

Professors aren’t the only ones who have access to fascinating samples for study under the lens of a microscope. Prepared microscope slides let students learn about a diverse range of topics including forensics and the microbial world. With their own microscope and a set of prepared slides, students are well-equipped for a head start on biology class, without leaving the home. Or, choose a slide making kit, providing everything budding scientists need to create their own slides, letting them satisfy their curiosity about the hidden details of life and objects around them.

Anatomical Models

University and college professors, medical professionals and high school science teachers know that the best way to learn about human anatomy is to see it. Not just in illustrations, but with realistic, three dimensional models. Accurate representations that can be examined from different angles, touched and even disassembled. Anatomical models range from teeth and the mouth to a life-size model of the human torso, complete with removable organs. These ultra-realistic human anatomy models are essential for teaching students and educating patients, and would be a perfect addition to a biology classroom or the waiting room of a medical practice.
