Snap Circuits 2

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.

Snap Circuits BRIC Structures

Kids can use their imagination to combine Snap Circuits with ordinary building bricks and make endless combinations of construction and circuitry. With Bric-2-Snap technology, kids can wire up their brick builds with Snap Circuits® lights, sounds, moving parts and 3-D circuits to invent almost anything and make it go.

Contents

  • 20 Snap Circuits component parts
  • 75 Bric-2-Snap adapters
  • 140+ fully compatible building bricks
  • Full-color, easy-to-read project manual (included in kit and online)

 

Snap Circuits 3D M.E.G. (Magnetics-Electronics-Gears)

Learn the basis of electricity, engineering, and circuitry using building pieces that snap together to make realistic, 3D circuits, similar to those found in homes, electronic equipment and skyscrapers. Build a house with roof lights and ceiling fans while finding out how all the electric and mechanical functions work. Learn about rotating lights, security systems, how to vary speed of a fan, how to make motors run more efficiently, how switches can be controlled by magnets, how generators work and much more.

Contents

  • 60+ parts, including:
    • 3D rotating snaps
    • Two-sided base grid with thru-straps
    • Rotating mirror ball
    • Rotating LED light
    • Fiber optic tree
    • Multiple-sized gears
    • Ceiling fan
    • Melody IC
    • Magnetic switch
  • 160+ projects
  • Illustrated manual (included in kit and online)

 

Snap Circuits Light

Watch and be amazed at what your music can do with the new Snap Circuits® LIGHT.  Connect your iPhone® or other device and enjoy your music as the lights change to the beat. The strobe light with spinning patterns will amaze you with its visual effects.

Contents include:

  • 55+ Snap-together parts
  • 175+ Projects
  • Color organ controlled by iPhone or other device, voice, or finger
  • Illustrated manual (included in kit and online)
