The STEM-Starter Kit turns a smartphone or tablet’s camera into a microscope — no cell service needed. This clever compact and affordable science kit, compatible with both iOS and Android devices, includes the clip-on microscope and 15 different specimens (animal, vegetable and mineral) on five prepared cardboard slides.

Our testers investigated indoors and out, informing their moms that this didn’t count as screen time.
