Experiential Education

Nature is full of hidden miniature life wherever you look - in the soil, in a tuft of moss, on leaves or under stones, in a pond or in the rainwater barrel. Make your excursions to an extra curricula place of learning, the visit of your museum, zoo or botanical garden to a very special event. Engage both, your young and grown up visitors by offering a unique, memorable experience. Let them visualize smallest objects with microscopes. Take them on an exciting and interactive journey through exhibitions and the world’s biodiversity. And of course, increase the attractiveness and therefore numbers of visitors of your museum of natural history and zoology, animal parks and zoos.

Microscopes are your instruments of choice delivering an exciting, hands-on, active learning resource. They should provide brilliant optics to view inert or live objects, a zoom system for varied magnifications, an illuminator allowing you to vary image contrast, and controls that are child's play to operate. You need transportable, robust instruments in your field study, museum, zoo or botanical garden, which show your samples as they are, no sample preparation or technical explanations needed. Your participants and visitors can immerse into the world of fleas, tapeworms and bedbugs, spiders, minerals and flowers and explore those objects more closely. Easily integrate the microscope in you permanent exhibition, adapt them to special tasks or just take them with you on your excursions. Let your visitors observe samples through eyepieces or with a connected display. Basic contrasting techniques such as brightfield, darkfield and oblique illumination in reflected and transmitted light will do the job.
