At a Glance:
Age: 8 years and up
Requirements: Ready to play
Warranty: Warranted against manufacturer's defects
The Snap Circuits Alternative Energy Kit comes with over 40 pieces to create 129 different electronic projects. The pieces, which include snap wires, slide switches, an electrode, a wind fan, and a rechargeable battery, snap together easily on the included plastic grid--no soldering required. Each piece is numbered and color-coded to make identifying them as easy as possible. These components combine to create working circuit boards just like the ones found inside televisions, radios, and other electronic devices.
Parts from this Alternative Energy Kit are compatible with other Snap Circuits kits. The power generated with this kit can even be used to power the experiments of other Snap Circuits projects.
Experience Green Energy Firsthand
The Green Alternative Energy Kit offers projects specifically designed to demonstrate how renewable energy is generated. Kids can experiment with solar power, windmills, hydroelectric power, rechargeable batteries, and liquid batteries to experience green energy generation firsthand. The kit comes with green energy components, like a solar cell, a hand crank, a fan, a water wheel, and a liquid holder with an electrode. An included green energy manual provides in-depth explanations of different energy sources.
Simple, Fun Projects Let Kids Learn While They Play
This Snap Circuits kit gives kids a fun, hands-on introduction to how electrical circuits work to run everyday electronic devices. They'll also gain valuable lessons in building, following instructions, and alternative energy. The project manual includes large color illustrations and simple directions for each project.
As they complete each of the 129 projects, children will learn about electric switches, currents, and more, while they put together devices like a working LCD clock, directional wind lights, a light-emitting diode, and a water wheel.
What's in the Box
