Are your kids into electronics and tinkering with them? I know my oldest son is! He loves electronics and anything that allows him to create and use his imagination. Today I am going to tell you about a great new line of products that allows you or your child to create circuits safely with the help of an ink pen. The Circuit Scribe line has several different electronic design kits that are perfect for your tween, teen, or just someone who loves science.
The basic concept of Circuit Scribe is that you draw your circuits with the help of a revolutionary pen that uses non-toxic conductive silver ink. This allows both newbies and experienced makers to have fun with electronics – in a whole new way! You simply sketch from point A to point B and connect the components to build complex circuits. The rollerball pen will write on printer paper, construction paper, cardstock, and photo paper – although photo paper performs the best.
This fall, Circuit Scribe has four new kits ranging in price from $9.99 to $99.99. There are also add-ons like a SPST switch, fan, motor and buzzer – all for less than $15.99. There is even a basic classroom kit, perfect for teachers. You can find the add-ons and other Circuit Scribe products at circuitscribe.com.
We received the Ultimate Kit and my oldest son spent some time going through the workbook and sketchbook, learning to use the kit. He really enjoyed creating circuits with the pen and thinks the kit is a lot of fun. I know he spent a good two hours experimenting with the kit and I like that it’s educational AND fun for him.
The Circuit Scribe Ultimate Kit contains everything needed to create fun and dynamic paper circuits. The kit includes 10 magnetic connection cables, a blinker, buzzer, light sensor, and two DPDT switches just to name a few. This kit is full of accessories to enable your kids to build a variety of circuits. It’s simple, fun, educational, and will make a great gift for anyone over the age of 8.
I love that my son is interested in STEM topics such as electronics, engineering, programming and math. I’m so glad that companies are creating products to help encourage kids to explore these topics. If you’re looking for a great educational gift this holiday season, we highly recommend Circuit Scribe electronic design kits. They’re affordable, fun, and educational – perfect for anyone!
