Oh-Snap Circuits Make Learning Fun!

My students need Snapcircuit kits to help them create and discover how circuits work.

My Students

I teach an exuberant and creative group of third grade students who are curious and eager to learn new things. Last year I learned about Makerspaces and how they can inspire students to think outside of the box. I researched how to include this unique area in my classroom this year. My students can use the Makerspace as an area to gather materials to solve design challenges and also as an area that includes hands on learning kits that will help them learn about engineering. My students would love to use Snap Circuits Jr to learn about how circuits work and create things that spin, light up, or move.

Students become so engaged with Snapcircuits, they continually go back and revise their circuits just as real engineers do.

The Snapcircuit kits hone in on the imagination of each child as they learn how circuits work in a real and meaningful way.

My Project

Makerspaces are engaging classroom areas that allow students to invent, explore, and problem-solve. Part of the Makerspace includes recyclable materials that students use to respond to design challenges. Makerspaces also include different resources that enable children to explore using electronic resources such as robots, computers and circuits. Electronic materials such as these are sometimes too expensive for most classroom teachers to afford. I would like to have a variety of Snapcircuit kits for my class so that we could use them in small groups at the same time. The kits would really engage my students and encourage them to one day become a computer engineer!
