Product Description:

Includes a silver pen, magnetic sheet, 6 electronic modules, circuit stencil, sticker sheet, 9-volt battery, and a starter workbook.

Publisher Description:

The Basic Kit is an entry level kit with a full-size pen, light outputs, and so much more! Explore basic circuit concepts like conductivity and work up to creating two kinds of blinking circuits using both the blinker circuit module and hand-drawn momentary switches.

Basic Kit Contains:

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
Category Description for Circuit Scribe:

Learn about electronics with a pen and sheet of paper? It sounds a bit like science fiction, but this unique take on circuits does just that! The core of Circuit Scribe is a non-toxic silver ink pen. Draw an "ink circuit" on a piece of paper, then snap the magnetic electronic modules (sensors, switches, transistors, and more) onto the drawing with the included magnetic sheet. Once a connection is completed & powered by the included battery, the electronics come to life. Each kit comes with a student workbook that introduces the concept, teaches the basics of electronics, and provides exercises to complete. Exercises include making touch sensors, series switches, and even creating a circuit from your signature! The unique presentation and concept is quite intuitive for youngsters just learning electronics. Replacing circuit blocks with conductive ink also de-clutters the learning area, helping students focus on specific modules & concepts.

The idea is fun, however the pen was frustrating to use. My son typically loves this type of thing. I noticed that once he figured the circuits and modules out, and got the pen working a couple of times, there is little challenge or exploration left- without purchasing more modules. I found it overpriced and think my money could have been much better spent on something that will be explored and playEd with more than once. I would say it could be useful for teaching electrical circuits to young children (less than 7, or someone entirely new to them), yet this doesn’t solve the problem of the pen being finicky, the key part to success. A disappointing product.
