I’m practically an expert on mucus. Not because of my children’s head colds but because of Educational Insights’ Talking Electron Microscope which has taken my mucus knowledge to new levels.
For instance, did you know that nose hair is thicker than hair on your head? And that your nose makes 1 liter of mucus a day? And most of it is eaten by YOU, swallowed down your throat.
I know this because my kids keep playing this talking mucus information over and over again. At the kitchen counter.
The Talking Electron Microscope talks in both learning and quiz mode, giving you options in plants, animals, viruses and bacteria, and “other” with 180 colorful, up-close images. It retails at Educational Insights for $64.99 and makes science pretty up close and personal.
Other fascinating slides of information includes: a cockroach leg, the pill bug, greenbottle fly maggot on beef, the tongue with papillae and taste buds, the human eye, the rose pedal, pollen grains, table salt, and a pine needle.
Plus, you get a friendly new friend named microscope. Who talks to you and tells you cool facts.
