My students need 3D circuit building kits for use in weekly computer class.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students attend computer class every week during their Specials time. Our school is located in a rural, high poverty community.
My students enjoy hands-on STEM projects.
This year, they completed the Star Wars Hour of Code and had the chance to host a BB-8 robot from Vermont Robot Rodeo at the same time. This gave them the chance to see how coding relates to real life robots.
They enjoy completing hands-on projects creating Snap Circuits, such as an FM radio, a voice changer, and a hand crank light.
My students enjoy hands-on learning activities. They have been using the Basic and Junior Snap Circuits kits to build and test many electrical engineering projects.
They will use the 3D Snap circuits kits to better understand how electricity is used in 3D settings such as buildings and tunnels.
They will also learn how everyday electrical items such as a projector, a light show, and a motion detector security system work, by building and testing their own.
Older students may gain an interest in entering the electrician field, by seeing how an actual 3D house is wired. Students will be able to use prior knowledge and experience of the kits they have used with a 3D Snap Circuits kit, as the parts can be integrated.
