STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math and STEM products encourage kids to develop core skills in these areas, no matter what their core interests and strengths may be. I’m all about a very well-rounded education, filled with science, math, english, reading, sports, music, and more! The challenge, at times, can be to get your child to really put their all into all of these diverse subjects and disciplines. Some kids are artsy (Natalie) and some kids are scientific (Liam). These toys really help to make both of these types of kids understand the important parts of science and how it relates to our daily lives.
I am loving this and so are my kids. It’s amazing that it’s so simple and works so effectively teaching them such important principles of science. They get to explore elementary electrical concepts like conductivity with the Circuit Scribe Basic kit. It contains everything you need to make a simple electrical circuit in such a fun and easy way. The basic kit includes:
- 9V Battery adapter with 9V battery
- x2 Bi-LED
- SPST Switch
- NPN Transistor
- 2-Pin Adapter with 5x resistors (100, 1k, 10k, 100k and 1M ohm), 2x capacitors (0.1uF, 1.0uF), and one photoresistor (10k ohms)
- Conductive Ink Pen
- Circuit Stencil
- Jumper Sticker Sheet
- Workbook (Optional)
- Steel sheet
How It Works
This Circuit Scribe Basic kit lets you plan your electrical circuit on paper and then build it with the included components. The Basic Kit Plus contains a workbook with 27 pages of lessons that works through resistance, elements in parallel and series, open and short circuits, and more. Work up to creating a touch-sensitive circuit using the NPN transistor.
It’s really cool to see your child just create an electric circuit with a metallic-ink pen that lights up. It’s a great, easy, and very fun way to help them understand how electricity and circuits work. It’s such an important part of modern life that’s so common that most people don’t give it a second thought. So it makes it even that much more powerful to see them learn and understand how it all works. Liam loves it! He makes new circuit designs all the time, never ceasing to marvel at how it all works.
