the supplied magnets (both ferro and electro) are quite weak so when you put the iron shavings tray over them you don't see any discernible magnetic field patterns as you're supposed to. Other than that, the product functioned as should and my son's science fair was an overall success.

Basically any and all snap circuits are a huge win in my household. My 10 year old spends hours building things and even used the Electromagnetism add on set in his science project that he just did for school. The whole family gets involved. My husband helped my boys build a radio last week and they were so excited to show everyone in the neighbourhood. Thank you for making educational items enjoyable!

This item is not very good: it lacks sufficient magnetic power when using the batteries as directed to really demonstrate the usefulness of electromagnets. If the battery holder could hold twice as many batteries to provide current to the electromagnet, then maybe the electromagnet in this product would be effective enough to demonstrate the technical principles it was intended to.

The electromagnet is very weak and barely works. The kids had fun with the other parts but I am disappointed.

Touted for ages 8 to 108, this little kit is being busily played with by grandchildren and their grandfather right now. The kit requires three (3) 1.5 volt alkaline AA batteries which are not included. First we had to locate the batteries! Luckily we had some on hand, then they all began playing. Included in the kit are a battery holder, compass, iron fillings, red and black jumper wires, electromagnet, iron core rod, paperclips, magnet, press switch, and thin rod. Instructions are given for four (4) projects: Magnets & Electronic Magnets, Magnetic Fields, Electromagnet Tower, and Be a Magician.
My husband thoroughly checked everything out with his volt meter and everything was working well. He and my granddaughters (ages 7 and 8) had a great time playing with it. My 7 year old granddaughter is fascinated with the iron filings in a clear container. She loves to put each pole of the magnet on it and watch what the iron filings do.
I definitely recommend this product for any little ones that enjoy learning anything about science and magnetism.

My son loves this extra add on. He has so much fun with snap-circuits. I would not hesitate recommending anything this company makes. Instructions are good, and he has a lot of fun with it.

12 pieces for about $12 (many of them inexpensive such as metal shavings, paperclips, etc.) when you can buy the 40 piece Snaptricity set for $10 more. I am disappointed thinking I had bought my son two different snap circuits sets by purchasing -Electromagnetism and Snaptricity. Pretty disappointed. He loves his SC-700 full snap circuits set so I wanted to supplement that with something education to do on rainy days. Elanco should more clearly indicate when something is a mini set of another!

I ordered this kit because I could not find the right supplies like the copper wire, magnets, metal shavings and the appropriate tools for making an science fair electromagnet. This kit solved my problems. I was grateful for the kit. My son took a computer class and he is 31 years old and enjoyed playing with it.
