Brock Magiscope®
For Grades K-12


The Homeschool Buyers Co-op is pleased to present the Best Deal on the Planet for the popular, award-winning Brock Magiscope, a sturdy field and home microscope for young scientists in grades K-12.

A Kid-Friendly, Rugged Microscope for Indoors and Out

If you have seen a microscope out on display in your local science center, science museum, or nature center, chances are you were seeing a Brock Magiscope. This durable little microscope features rugged construction and an easy-to-use design combined with quality optics, and is highly recommended by someone who knows what he's talking about -- Robert Krampf, the Happy Scientist. See his video testimonial at the top of the page

The Brock Magiscope features:

  • Durability -- The rugged cast aluminum construction with tempered brass on brass helps ensure you'll have many years of use in your home or in the field. (But take good care of those glass lenses -- they are the real McCoy -- not plastic.)
  • Simplicity -- No bulbs, no mirrors, electricity, or batteries required. No exposed screws, threads, or levers; only one moving part.
  • Ease of Use -- It's fine adjustment ramp focus mechanism is easy enough for a 4-years old to use.
  • Innovation -- The patented illuminator optic called the Lumarod bends light to directly illuminate your specimens without bulbs, batteries, mirrors, or prisms.
  • Versatility -- With packages that give 20x, 40x, 50x, 100x, 200x, and 400x magnification by changing eyepieces and objectives, it has enough power to meet almost any homeschool need. The optional Surface Adaptor lets you get up close to subjects that won't fit on a slide.
  • Guaranteed -- Brock Optical offers an unconditional Lifetime Warranty
  • Made in the USA -- According to Brock, every time you buy a Magiscope, you are supporting over thirty American companies and their workers.
