Does your child wonder how simple electronic circuits work? Have they ever asked how a light switch works? Come on in to Do Space and check out one of our Snap Circuits Tech Kits and learn the basics of electronics. According Elenco, the makers of Snap Circuits:

Snap Circuits® teaches basic engineering, electronics and circuitry concepts by using building components with snaps to assemble electronic circuits on a simple “rows-and-columns” base grid. The resulting projects function like the printed circuit board found in most electronic products. Each Snap Circuits® part is easily identifiable by a different color and purpose, and each kit includes an easy-to-follow project manual. Our innovative product line offers a wide range of kits, in differing size and complexity, perfect for future engineers ages 8+, with a beginner set designed for kids ages 5+.

The Snap Circuits® brand has been endorsed by K-12 educators globally and used in schools, libraries, museums, afterschool and homeschool programs, STEM and Maker programs, and at home. Many of today’s rising leaders in science and technology learned the basics of engineering by creating and inventing with Snap Circuits® as a child. Teachers and educators worldwide use Snap Circuits® and its curriculum-rich, full-color manuals to teach kids basic concepts in a fun and exciting way. Educators also applaud Snap Circuits® because it reinforces other important skills, such as small motor skills and reading.

Each of our kits has several projects available to build and test. Just find the kit in our Active Learning Lab and bring it to the Tech Help Desk to check it out.
