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.

Circuit Scribe

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:

6 Modules:

  • 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)

Additional Items:

  • 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.

Helpful online platform sketch.circuitscribe.com to learn additional instructions for all age types and the toy is suitable for ages 8 and up.

See It In Action

Check out the following video and see the coolness, the magic, the awesome of this STEM toy! Get your kid into science as much as mine are, with the help of this fun toy. It’s great…and now you can really see what I mean!

Awesome, yes? Seriously, I’ve been playing with this, just a little bit. It’s just really interesting and really well done. A great job all around.

My daughter loves tinkering with electronics. She would love this!

Jocelyn @ Hip Mama's Place September 27, 2017 - 8:23 PM

It’s really good to have the kids involved in science and to allow them to make their own experiments as well. This is a pretty awesome set to give to the kids! It’s going to make them learn while having fun.

Carol Cassara September 27, 2017 - 8:25 PM

It’s such a nice gift for the kids to get them to be more interested in science. I have always liked giving kids educational toys that are also fun. This is definitely something that I’ll buy for them!

I am loving all these things we can get to boost a child’s interest in STEM. I wish we had this when my kids were growing up. If this was available back then, they would have been in a different career today. I have young nephews and nieces who would benefit greatly from this. I will let their moms know.

Dogvills September 28, 2017 - 4:30 PM

This is a fantastic way to get kids interested in electronics! I don’t have small kids anymore but I would definitely recommend this to friends and family with young children.

adriana September 28, 2017 - 7:52 PM

This is so great for kids! Awesome to get them interested in electronics – it’s so important in the technological world we live in! Loving this – I have to grab one for my nephew. He would just love it!
