Electricity and Circuits Foundations

Elenco®s Snap Circuits® makes learning electronics easy and fun!  With its easy-to-follow instructions, Snap Circuits® gives your child a hands-on education to discover how electrical circuits — like those found in everyday devices kids are familiar with — function and operate. All parts are mounted on plastic modules and snap together with ease. Enjoy hours of educational fun while learning about electronics. No tools required. Uses AA batteries.

Note: Students who have taken our previous Electricity and Circuitry Foundations course will find this new course fun and engaging.

What You’ll Learn to Create

  • Explore the basics of electricity and making circuits.

My 8-year old son loved his snap circuit tech class.”

Happy Parent

My younger children (11 yr) and (8 yr) have loved learning electronics this year with the snap links kit – they have graduated to taking apart thrift store finds to figure out how they work.”

My 7-year old son has loved using the snap circuit kit. Before we started the class I was worried that it would be over his head and I would be helping a lot with the projects. However, he really wanted to do it, so we went ahead with asking for the course. He has been able to build everything independently, and all I have had to do is help explain how things work to him. Was a great way to learn about complex electrical concepts on a fun non-threatening way. It was great for him to learn the function and vocabulary of things like capacitors, resistors, etc. He loved it.”
