Science Close Up

Measuring lenses can be used for close observation and accurate measurement of small items. The Science Close Up kits are suitable for use in KS2 and Scottish second level projects when pupils are ready to move on from magnifying glasses. It allows pupils to develop an understanding of small units of measurement (mm), reading of scales, and the decimal point. It gives the opportunity to use "real" science equipment with strong cross-curricular links with mathematics.
