My kids say they saw another team with one and got jealous I guess. I would have never thought they were allowed.Off the soinc.org website https://www.soinc.org/sites/default/fil ... 121718.pdfYou will be provided a microscope, the only possible advantage in bringing one is not having to share if they don't have one per station. Even then, there are rarely issues with not having access to the microscope.Uh, no? Truthfully though, I’m not sure. I’d just bring a magnifying lens just in case though.
So yes, a hand held lens is permissible, but a hand help microscope? Why do you think you need it?
