Here's a fun and engaging way to learn how gizmos and gadgets work. This Snap Circuits Deluxe kit builds more than 500 projects. A Dr. Toy Winner for the top 100 best children's products, it has easy-to-identify, color-coded parts and teaches electronic circuits through practical applications. Kids can create their own experiments and games, or build their own digital voice recorder, AM radio, digitally tuned FM radio, AC generator, screaming fan, whistle switch and much more.
Give your child an exciting, hands-on introduction to electronics with Elenco Electronics Snap Circuits PRO SC-500. This innovative kit contains over 70 color-coded, real circuit components that snap together to create working electronic circuits and devices. Recommended for children 8 and older, this set offers 511 do-it-yourself projects that will give your child an entertaining, concrete education on how electronics work.
Create Working Electronic Circuits
Snap Circuits comes with over 70 pieces to create 511 different electronic projects. The pieces, which include snap wires, slide switches, resistors, an FM radio module, and a 7-segment LED display, snap together easily on 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 they're familiar with. They'll 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 from the 100-in-1 and 300-in-1 kits and 206 additional projects, including a music meter, an FM radio, and a digital voice recorder. With these projects, children will learn about electric switches, integrated circuits, digital circuits, fuses, and more.
Grow as You Go
Because the projects are arranged in order of complexity, kids can build on their skills as they progress 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, kids can put together a music alarm, different visual displays, an adjustable light control, and more.
Design Your Own Circuits and Upgrade Your Kit
Once children have mastered several of the techniques introduced in this kit, they can use the components to experiment and create their own customized circuits and electronic devices. The Snap Circuits PRO SC-500 can also be upgraded to the Snap Circuits Extreme (SC-750) or the Snap-Micro I Standard (SCM-400) with the purchase of a UC-80 or UC-100 upgrade kit, respectively. Kids will enjoy additional parts, manuals, and projects that'll take their kit--and their fun--to the next level.
Snap Circuits PRO SC-500 requires four AA batteries, which are not included.
