Product Description:

Extreme is the perfect description for this easy-to-use circuit kit with computer interface! Kit contains 80 colorful building blocks with snaps to build over 750 projects! Children learn by doing as they complete the guided projects. The comprehensive instruction booklets provide detailed orientation to the parts in the kit and their functions, safety guidelines, a checklist and a troubleshooting guide. It also lists each project with a full color diagram of the finished setup, objective, and directions. The parts are all labeled on the diagram, making it easy to set up the project, and directions include a quick explanation of how the circuit works. Maybe, after the thrill of creating their own laser "gun" or electronic kazoo wears off, they'll come back and actually figure out how it works. The circuit to build is shown in color, with numbers, identifying blocks to use and snap together.

Includes everything from the SC-500 Pro-Kit (item # 029507), plus additional projects covering solar cells, electromagnetism, vibration switches and 70 computer interfaced projects, turning your personal computer into an oscilloscope and spectrum analyzer.

Requires 4 AA batteries. You will also need a Windows® compatible computer and microphone input port for the computer interface projects (Software download required and available at supplier site for no additional charge.). Supplier also provides a link to a similar Mac version which is similar in capabilities but will not match the instruction manual exactly. Fascinating and fun, this hands-on, exploratory science kit well prepares children for upper level sciences. ~ Deanne

Category Description for Snap Circuits w / Computer Interface:

When professional electrical engineers are working, they often use oscilloscopes and spectrum analyzers to see the electrical signals in circuits. While we don't all have access to this kind of equipment, these two Snap Circuit Kits include special software and an interface cable to let aspiring engineers replicate this technology. Both kits below come with a computer interface kit that includes a CD-ROM, instructions, and an interface cable. The CD-ROM contains .pdf files which get students started using the cable, and includes 73 experiments that can be done with this equipment. The instructions on the CD are full-color, are laid out similarly to the ones in the books, and can be printed off as well. System requirements: Windows 95 or later, and a working microphone port. If your student is serious about electronics, they will enjoy using one of these more "professional" kits. - Jess

Category Description for Electronic Snap Circuits:

These easy-to-use circuit kits are composed of over 30 easy to snap "blocks" of all necessary electronic components, similar to those used in Switch On!. An impressive number of projects can be made using these parts, including an electric light, a sound activated switch, lamp and fan, two-speed fan, laser "gun." police siren, clap sounds, blinking double flashlight, motor sounds, strobe lights, motor-controlled lamp, lamp/speaker/fan in parallel, pencil alarm, touch motor, bomb sound, simple water alarm, and many, many more projects and games. Each project is listed in the booklet, and featured in a half-page layout which includes a full-color diagram of the finished setup, objective, and directions. The parts are all labeled on the diagram, making it easy to set up the project, and the directions include an explanation of how the circuit works, so maybe after the thrill of creating their own laser "gun" or water alarm wears off, they'll come back and actually figure out how it works. A fairly detailed orientation to the parts in the kit and their functions, safety guidelines, parts checklist and a troubleshooting guide are all included at the beginning, so students can complete the projects safely - and get a lot more from the kit than just "making cool stuff." Looking back from beyond college, I definitely recommend any child looking to the science route in college to play around a bit with one of these kits - it honestly does make understanding circuits and charges at the college level a little easier. This is definitely too fun to be "science!" A Dr. Toy 100 Best Children's Products Winner. - Jess

does it have 80 parts like the regular one?
A shopper on Sep 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, there are 80 parts.
Does this kit include all the components necessary for Kits 100, 300 and 500 as well?
A shopper on Feb 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This kit includes computer interface components and experiments. These are different from the Basic line that includes the 100, 300, and 500 experiments kits. We do have add on kits that utilize the Basic kits. Here are the numbers: #6862 (100 to 750); #6863 (300 to 750); and #6872 (500 ti 750).
