One of the most popular toys for children for the last 12 months has been the Snap Circuits kits. Ever since the concept was first presented to children by Elenco Electronics they have been in high demand and with larger and more creative kits being produced that demand and interest continues to rise.
The chance for curious youngsters with an interest in science to get their hands on an electronics set that allows them to create things that actually work has been presented to children everywhere thanks to Snap Circuits. These kits offer children from the ages of 8 years and up a bundle of projects that are fun to build with easy to follow instructions and educate along the way. The components snap into place on the large grid and each part is clearly labeled with easy to understand symbols making it a very easy process of building each project.
The Snap Circuits SC-300 kit is a particularly extensive electronics kit that provides over 300 different projects to be completed.
The kit consists of 60 pieces such as snap wires, a slide switch, a resistor, a microphone and capacitors. They snap together onto the grid that is provided with the kit which precludes the need for soldering.
Learning While Playing
The SC-300 kit follows on from where the smaller SC-100 and 204 kits left off. All of the projects that could be completed in these smaller kits are included in this one. Each of the projects give curious kids the chance to expand their knowledge of electronics as well as give them a reason to want to find out more.
Although the all of the Snap Circuits kits come with a long list of projects that may be attempted, the knowledge that will be built up through completing them should give children the confidence to begin to experiment with the components. This is where the real creativity begins and the educational side is even more pronounced.
Not only will the Snap Circuits kit give children who have a basic interest and understanding in electronics the perfect set up to expand their knowledge, but it also provides an opportunity to read and follow instructions with the results plainly obvious at the end.
