Snap Circuits Explore Coding Kit
Over 30 different electronic building and coding projects are contained in this exciting Snap Circuits electronic STEM building set. Build various functioning circuits for lights, fans, sirens, recording and playback, series and parallel circuits, and other fun electronics and use the free downloadable coding app to program and control various aspects of the circuits. Kids can even try BLOCKLY coding to control some of these circuits. This hands-on electronic building kit provides easy to follow app-driven projects and helps kids develop STEM skills in both circuitry and coding. This coding toy for kids features the snap on, Snap Circuits Bluetooth enabled coding module. This engineering kit does require the use of either an Apple or Android based smart phone or tablet for coding purposes (sold separately). Simply download the free app from either the App Store or Google Play to enable your smart phone or tablet. Follow the color-coded, detailed instruction sheets to provide step-by-step directions on each project, making learning both easy and fun. Once the circuit is assembled, use the coding app to control the various functions of the circuit and learn about electricity, building circuits, and basic and BLOCKY coding. This STEM based learning activity will provide hours of fun and learning. Ages 8 years and up Elenco’s Snap Circuits makes learning electronics easy, educational, and fun!
As a teacher, I have used snap circuits in my class for more over 8 years. My students love it and learn so much from it. It keep them learning and engaged for hours! In addition, the level of understanding for circuitry they gain is far superior with snap circuits than with any other product or illustration that I have used.
Elenco Electronics has been supplying schools, universities and businesses with quality education tools, components and kits for nearly 50 years. This is a quality product. I have been using the same kits in my classroom for years.
I don’t recommend the Rover Kit, Light Kit, or Sound Kit. The same concepts are covered in the Jr, 300 or Extreme 750 kits, which I do recommend. You don’t get the same bang for your buck with these other three kits (Rover Kit, Light Kit, or Sound Kit). Students are quickly board with the Rover kit, in my experience.
