    Working Microscope

    created by carl.merriam on 2013.07.17

    Main Section
    Science is FUN!

    Did you know that it's possible to build a working compound microscope with nothing but LEGO elements? The key is the magnifying glass. All you need is several of these convex lenses, and some Power Functions LEDs.

    This kit would use LEGO magnifying glasses to actually magnify objects.

    Play features include:

    Corse and fine adjustment knobs
    Adjustable stage
    Adjustable magnification
    Lights

    The current design uses a single lens for a magnification effect in the eye piece. However, with enough light, it is possible to make a fully functional version.
