My eleven yr old son wants a microscope for christmas. We have a Walmart cheap one, and it is worthless and a waste of money.
My question is can anyone recommend a microscope that would be user friendly for a child of that age, and yet still functional? As in able to see the amoeba in pond water. Without breaking the bank. Something under $250 or $300 would be nice if it is possible. Anyone got any ideas? I don't even know where to start looking..
