Snap Circuits Motion and Sound


"Get your brain in motion and snap together a circuit of educational fun! Snap circuits is essentially a set of building blocks with snaps for building electronic circuits that do all kinds of fascinating actions. In this set, you'll be building an amazing array of things that move. Create a lighted fan that changes colors as it spins. A mechanical bug that actually crawls across the table. Build an air fountain, a motion detector, or a colorful, animal-themed merry-go-round. Even a mini-car that drives around the room, or a plane that moves with vibrations, plus so many more! All the while, you'll be learning all about how circuits work, how they connect to do different things, and how to imagine and create new circuits all on your own. With over 160 projects to complete, plus all the circuits you're encouraged to invent, there's no telling just how far this circuit board will take you! Easy to build and fun to create, the Snap Circuits Motion set sparks up a brain-strengthening circuit of educational action." -- Fat Brain Toys website


"Snap Circuits Sound, the newest addition to the Snap Circuits line, teaches all about electricity and sound, including how it is made and heard. With more than 185 projects to help demonstrate the principles of sound, students will learn about electricity and how to build circuits. Additionally, Snap Circuits Sound explains concepts related to sound and hearing, such as frequency, electronic radio waves, mono and surround sound, echoes, SONAR, ultrasounds, and the difference between music and noise.

Snap Circuits Sound includes a keyboard, a voice charger for recording sounds and playing them back at various speeds, an audio jack and stereo cable for use with your iPod or speakers, sound energy demonstration container for showing sound waves, and so much more! Add echo effects; connect to your smartphone and use apps to analyze sounds; play with color changing light, and even create your own experiments! The 40+ pieces, 185+ projects, and 86-page full-color manual are just the beginning!"
