About Califone CM1-USB

Built specifically for use in the classroom, the Califone USB Digital Microscope gives students a chance to learn about the world around them up close. It can be connected to a classroom computer, so students can be split into groups to conduct experiments and see the whole picture on the screen at the same time.

This USB Microscope allows for real-time display on computer screens, enabling multiple students to view detail at the same time. With a connected computer wired to a projector, an entire class or auditorium can participate, making it ideal for facilitating student understanding of the 6 goals within the National Educational Technology Standards, or NETS.
