Cluttercast: Microscope

March 6th, 2009

 I never liked science.  I always thought I was missing a scientific gene.  Or maybe I just had  a mental block.  I managed to make it through high school and college (Yale, in fact) without ever taking chemistry.  I’m not proud of this—in fact this huge gap in my education is one of my major regrets. 

I didn’t want the same thing to happen to my kids.  I tried to encourage an interest in science despite my own deficiency.   But maybe there is a scientific gene missing from our DNA, after all.  This microscope sat for years in our house—and no one ever opened the box.

    My seven year old already knows he wants to be a scientist. Or an inventor. Or “the kind of doctor who would try to find out more about how babies grow inside their mommies to help people with sick babies.” I definitely see a microsope in his future. I think he’d love to try one out now.

    I’ll even clutter cast two things to make up for bringing one one item into the house!

    My cousin will be turning 8 years old in May and I know he would absolutely love this as a gift. He loves nature and discovery and a microscope would blow his mind!
