Introduce children to the beginner’s electronic systems with the Elenco Electronics Snap Circuits Jr. model, SC-100. This innovative kit includes color-coordinated snap-on components, electric switches, a flying saucer, and other sound devices for creating basic electronic systems. The best part is no wires are required! Simply snap and connect components onto the plastic snap grid. Follow the color-coded diagrams and easy instructions from the manual to light a light bulb, create alarms, set doorbells, launch a flying saucer, and many more projects!
The simple instruction manual teaches children how electricity circuits function and how it generates everyday devices they are familiar with. Experiments become more and more challenging as they progress through the projects in the manual. With experience and knowledge cultivated from previous experiments, children could use their creativity to create their own devices. The kit is fun, safe, educational, and an excellent way to learn about electricity and conductivity.
The set comes with a plastic snap grid, 32 electrical components, and one project manual of over 100 projects. The set requires two AA batteries (not included) to test the experiments.
Warning: Contains small parts, not recommended for children under 3 years.
What we love about Snap Circuits is how it cultivates children’s interest in science by experimenting conductivity and learning the cause-and-effects of electronic systems. Snap Circuits Jr. triggers critical thinking skills as they play and progress on projects and activities to generate a successful circuit.
The best part of about Snap Circuits is the option of upgrading your child’s set by ordering additional parts and accessories through the Elenco website! Children could build more complex models with the additional components and projects are no longer limited to the set purchased.
