Recommended age: Children 8 and up.

Create Working Electronic Circuits

Snap Circuits comes with over 60 pieces to create 305 different electronic projects. The pieces, which include snap wires, a slide switch, a resistor, a microphone, and capacitors, snap together easily onto the included plastic grid – no soldering required. Each piece is numbered and color-coded to make identifying them easy. These components combine to create working circuit boards just like the ones found inside televisions, radios, and other electronic devices.

Simple, Fun Projects Let Kids Learn While They Play

With its easy-to-follow instructions, Snap Circuits gives your child a hands-on education in how electrical circuits run the everyday devices that she’s familiar with. She will also gain valuable lessons in building and in following instructions. The project manuals include large color illustrations and simple directions for each project.

The project list includes all of the projects included in the SC-100 set and 204 additional projects, including a photosensitive electronic organ, a lie detector, an AM radio, and a two-finger touch lamp. With these projects, your child will experiment with electric switches, integrated circuits, digital circuits, fuses, and the transformation of circuit sounds into other sounds.

Grow as You Go

Because the projects are arranged in order of complexity, your child can build on his skills as he progresses through the manual. The lessons start out with a simple electric light and switch project that demonstrates how electricity is turned on and off with a switch. Further along, your child can put together a fire fan symphony, a water-detection alarm, a delayed-action fan, and more.

Design Your Own Circuits and Upgrade Your Kit

Once your child has mastered several of the techniques introduced in this kit, she can use the components to experiment and create her own customized circuits and electronic devices. The Snap Circuits SC-300 can also be upgraded to the Snap Circuits Pro, Snap Circuits Extreme, or SCM-400 with the purchase of a UC-50, UC-70, or UC-100 upgrade kit, respectively. Your child will enjoy additional parts, manuals, and projects that’ll take her kit – and her fun – to the next level.
