Product Description

Snap Circuits Jr. teaches children 8 and older about circuits, current, resistance, switches, motors, and other basic electronics concepts. Sold in stores, Snap Circuits Jr. is widely used in classrooms because the parts are durable, colorful, and easy to assemble into projects that illuminate, make sounds, and more. The Snap Circuits Jr. Access Kit, which is sold exclusively through APH, includes the commercial product and makes it accessible to blind and visually impaired users by providing parts labeled in braille, along with written project instructions in braille and large print.

The kit gives instructions for building 101 projects, and inventive students can create more. All the parts snap together on the building surface, called the “breadboard,” to form circuits with a perceptible result.

The written instructions give step-by-step directions for assembling each project, along with a brief description of the purpose of the project and interesting features to learn about. Students will gain basic knowledge of circuits, conduction, resistance, switches, and other electronics concepts while enjoying the satisfaction of snapping the parts into place and turning each circuit on.

Combine  the Snap Circuits Jr® Access Kit with the BRIC: Structures® Access Kit, RC Snap Rover® and Snapino® Access kits to open up endless possibilities of projects.

Adult Supervision: This product is intended for use by adults and children who have attained sufficient maturity to read and follow directions and warnings. Because children’s abilities vary, adults should exercise discretion as to which experiments are suitable and safe (the instructions should enable supervising adults to establish the experiment’s suitability for the child). Make sure your child reads and follows all of the relevant instructions and safety procedures, and keeps them at hand for reference. Never modify your parts, as doing so may disable important safety features in them, and could put your child at risk of injury.
