Snap Circuits Motion Kit

Snap Circuits Motion Kit

Snap Circuits does it again! The Motion kit is focused on physics and things that “move” like pulleys, fans and motion detectors. Like the other sets, Snap Circuits gives your child a hands-on education in how electrical circuits work to run the everyday devices that they’re familiar with.

Simple machines meets electricity!  What a great STEM combination.

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.

Snap Circuits Motion requires four AA batteries, not included.

I don’t recommend the Rover Kit, Light Kit, or Sound Kit.  The same concepts are covered in the 300 or Extreme 750 kits.  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.
