snapcircuitCreate Working Electronic Circuits Come to the library and create. Until May 27th, we have 4 Snap Circuit kits. These are exciting, hands-on introduction to electronics with Electronics Snap Circuits . Each kit contains over 60 color-coded, real circuit components that snap together to create working electronic circuits and devices. Recommended for children 8 and older, this set offers 305 do-it-yourself projects that will give you an entertaining, concrete education on how electronics work. Snap Circuits comes with over 60 pieces to create 305 different electronic projects. The pieces, which include snap wires, a slide switch, a resistor, a microphone, and capacitors, snap together easily onto the included plastic grid–no soldering required. Each piece is numbered and color-coded to make identifying them easy. These components combine to create working circuit boards just like the ones found inside televisions, radios, and other electronic devices. These will be back in August of 2016.squishy circuit

Squishy Circuits at the Library in June.  Use homemade conductive and resistant play-doh to build electronic sculptures that light up, move, and make sounds. Anyone who has ever tasted play-doh knows that it’s a salty substance. The salt allows electricity to flow through the dough. With the addition of a homemade dough that substitutes sugar for salt, the dough becomes resistive instead, and complex circuits can be created to power all kinds of objects. We use battery packs, LED lights, hobby motors, and buzzers to explore electricity in a fun, hands-on way.LED lights, hobby motors, and buzzers to explore electricity in a fun, hands-on way.
