GIVEAWAY of the week:
Snap Circuits Jr. SC 100 and
The Magic School Bus and the Electric Field Trip by Joanna Cole
Do you have a budding scientist? (Or would you like to encourage “someone” to show a little interest in science?) Snap Circuits are just the Christmas gift you’re looking for.
Again, last Christmas when MacGyver began making his list for Santa, we jumped on the internet to review his choices. Wow! Snap Circuits had more than glowing reviews! Snap Circuits are similar to Legos in that the children simply snap the pieces together like building blocks, while learning the basics of electronics.
MacGyver can follow the colorful pictures in the manual to build projects such as a switch circuit with light bulb, a motor and fan and a flying saucer. When he first received the set he needed a little help from Daddy to get started. Soon he left the directions behind and began building his own circuits. The manufacturer recommended age: 8 years and up.
No wires, no soldering, no screw driver required — pieces snap together. Requires 2 “AA” batteries, not included.
