Learn about the basics of principles of electricity as you complete 8 fun and easy hands-on projects! Build a circuit lamp and check the electric current meter to see how much electricity is flowing. Test different kinds of circuits to see how the current changes and even build a current divider and split the circuit's power between two lamps! Snap Circuits makes it fun and easy for younger children to develop an interest in electronics and engineering by seeing how simple devices such as this motion detector work. Every piece is brightly colored and differentiated by number to limit confusion and frustration.
Each project is listed in the booklet, and featured in a half-page layout which includes a full-color diagram of the finished setup, objective, and directions. The parts are all labeled on the diagram, making it easy to set up the project, and the directions include an explanation of how the circuit works, so maybe after the thrill of creating their own lamp circuit, curious minds will come back and actually figure out how it works.
Snap Circuits gives your child a hands-on education on how electrical circuits work to run the everyday devices that they’re familiar with. They’ll also gain valuable lessons in building and in following instructions. Makes an excellent holiday gift for inquiring young minds!
