Snap Circuits Junior Projects
Snap Circuit Jr. SC-100 is the starter Snap Circuits kit, introducing kids age 8 and up to electronics and circuits through 101 hands-on projects. See the image below for a complete listing of the projects in Snap Circuits Junior. Each project is clearly illustrated in the manual (click on project listings below to view the actual sc100 manual).
Here are two video examples of Snap Circuit Jr projects:
While this is a “starter” electronics kit, it is by no means just for younger kids. It’s a great set for all ages wanting to learn more about how circuits and electricity work. If you discover a fascination to learn more about electricity, Elenco Electronics offers upgrade kits for your Snap Circuits Jr kit, expanding the number of projects from 101 to either 300, 500, or 750.
The only thing not included in the kit is the 2 “AA” batteries required for the experiments. If you prefer not use batteries, an AC/DC adapter is available through the optional Snap Circuits Battery Eliminator component.
