Explore Life Under The Water With Nancy B Science Club's Aquascope

My daughter is fascinated with ocean creatures. When I received the Nancy B's Science Club Aquascope & Underwater Wonders Activity Journal, I knew exactly that my 6 year old daughter would love this. For this review though, I would focus more on describing the Aquascope and how we tried it on our apartment complex' swimming pool because we haven't had the chance to go to the beach yet since we received it.

The Nancy B's Aquascope came in a nice box. It came in 1 piece and has a journal included and instructions for the aquascope. I read the instructions and put on batteries for the built-in LED flashlight.

The Underwater Wonders Activity Journal has lots of fun activities inside. There are spaces and circles to draw and document what my daughter will see when we go to the beach.

The Aquascope has a nice design and color combination. The drawings of sea creatures on the side of the green tube are nice. There's a built-in thermometer stripe at the top of the aquascope as well as a ruler on the other side. The built-in LED light is bright and can be turned on or off with a push of a button. There is also a waterline mark so that water wouldn't go in the aquascope.

The two gray tubes can be removed from the Aquascope so that only a viewing tube is left. It's effective to view what's under the water without magnification.

When we tried the Aquascope in the swimming pool, it was easy to focus under the water but the gray tubes kept sliding down. I had to help my daughter stabilize it by holding it and supporting the Aquascope. We didn't see any difference with the LED light because the water is clear so I can't say if the LED light will shine bright enough under water. The thermometer strip works and shows a temperature reading but I can't say if it displays the right temperature.

After trying out the Aquascope in the pool, my 6 year old daughter couldn't wait for us to visit the beach and I can't wait to see if the Aquascope would let us see creatures living under the sea. :)
