Elenco Electronics Snap Circuits Motion

About the Snap Circuits Motion

A building kit that makes toys that move is cool enough on its own – but how about one that teaches your child how electrical circuits work? Snap Circuits sets add a healthy dollop of education into building kits that already have a terrific “wow” factor. For instance, what kid could resist the opportunity to build a working motion detector


The Elenco Snap Circuits Movement kit lets kids build over 160 working projects, with these items as the centerpiece:

 

  • A lighted fan that changes color as it spins;
  • A mechanical bug that really crawls;
  • A mini-car that drives;
  • A small spinning merry-go-round; and
  • A plane that moves with vibrations!


All of these items run using Snap Circuits pieces, which connect to each other when they’re snapped to the included grids. Snapping a circuit together is no more difficult than, say, clicking two LEGO blocks together, and each project explains to kids how the components work together, teaching basic concepts about electricity and circuit design and imparting knowledge that will be useful for the next project (not to mention science class).


The Elenco Snap Circuits Movement set exercises your child’s fine motor, logic, and focusing skills, and is a great way to get kids excited about STEM learning (science, technology, engineering, and math). The set comes with a base grid (11 x 7.7 inches), 3 1-snap wires, 6 2-snap wires, 3 3-snap wires, 1 4-snap wire, 1 5-snap wire, 1 6-snap wire, an air fountain, a ball for the air fountain, a spout for the air fountain, 2 battery holders, a rubber band, a cross-shaped bar, a 100muF capacitor, a 1muF capacitor, a crawler body, crawler parts, a color light emitting diode, a red/yellow bicolor light emitting diode, a 1-inch gear, 2 1.75-inch gears, a 2.55-inch gear, a 3.3-inch gear, a geared motor, a black jumper wire, a red jumper wire, a light motor, a mini-car, a merry-go-round base, a 4-piece set of disc cut-outs, a 9-piece set of cardboard figures, airplane parts, a pivot stand, a 0.9-inch pulley, a 1.3-inch pulley, a 2.1-inch pulley, an NPN transistor, an adjustable resistor, 2 rubber rings, a slide switch, a vibration switch, a switcher, a tilt switch, 2 PAW screws, 2 PA screws, a speaker, an alarm IC, a motion detector, a blue stand, and an 82-page instruction booklet and project guide.
