A Complete Lesson In Basic Electronics
The project manuals included in the Snap Circuits Kits contain a brief description of how your parts work (the "About Your Snap Circuits Parts" page) and the projects you build are great for learning about electricity, electronics, and science. But for those who wants to learn more, Elenco Electronics also offers a complete lesson in basic electronics, called the Student Guide.

Learn By Doing
The Student Guide for the Snap Circuits product is a tool for opening the exciting world of electronics. Following the Learn by Doing concept, electronics will be easy for students to understand by using Snap Circuits to build circuits as they learn about them. The Student Guide emphasizes the practical applications of electronics, without bogging down in mathematics. The lessons are as much about science as about electronics.

Develop Basic Skills
Why should students learn about electronics? Electronics plays an important and increasing role in their everyday lives, and so some basic knowledge of it is good for all of them. Learning about it teaches how to do scientific investigation, and the projects develop basic skills needed in today's world.

Student and Teacher Guides are to accompany the Electronic Snap Circuits Kit and the Snap Circuits Pro 500 Kit, each sold separately.

Topics Covered:
  • Resistors
  • Capacitors
  • Transistors
  • Motors
  • Integrated Circuits
  • Series Circuits
  • Parallel Circuits
  • Switches
  • Batteries

    Written with the help of educators, the Student Guide is essential in covering all topics related to electricity and electronics being taught in middle schools and above. Includes real world applications and problem solving quizzes.

    The Teacher Guide is meant to prepare educators for proper introduction of Snap Circuits and guide them through each chapter with quizzes for students to test their knowledge.

    A Good Challenge for an 8th Grader September 26, 2011
    Reviewer: Teacher of 3 Middle Schoolers from Fl, US  
    The student guide is an easy-to-read manual introducing every part in the Snap-Circuits Kit as well as it's uses and several practical applications. It experiments demonstrating the concepts as well as short quizzes as the end of each chapter. I was slightly disappointed in that it appears to be geared towards an older student and my 3rd grader is a little bit lost with some of the technical parts of it. It is perfect for my 8th grader - challenging, but doable.

    The teacher's manual includes additional quizzes (that I give the boys at the end of each chapter) and answer keys.

    I like how the book is applicable to three different models of Electronic Snap Curcuits - SC-300R, 500R, or 750R. It is divided into sections according to which model the student has, so the material he or she reads matches the parts they have for experiments.
