That looks really interesting! For younger kids I would recommend snap circuits for ease of use.

Don't take out the screws or the software gets corrupted. Corrupted as fuck and crazy expensive. You may also discover the terrible secret of the Snap Classic. Seriously though, this 'info vid' was made around '06-'07 and is truly a piece of work. He's a terrible liar. One of the worst I've seen. Awkward. He can't even look in the camera when he starts laying it on thick.

That box could be replicated for under $20. A box, a couple of lights, switches, a timer relay, and the secret 'Miricle Whip' size container. The guy doesn't even bother with an A/C adapter and ops for the 9 volt battery. I guess your Bio-Photon Analyzer needs to be portable. He sells these things for $1900USD on eBay.

Dude has a whole series of vids for this scam.

Following this idea, the OP could get one of the electronics kits where instead of programming, you put some circuit blocks together, as in SnapCircuits:

When I was a 9 year old girl, I thought building circuits was the freakin' coolest thing ever. Snap Circuits is a cool kit for building some fun electronic projects. This is one of the smaller kits - there are bigger ones or upgrade kits if she gets into it. Seriously, people love this thing.

Snap Circuts is the modern version of my favorite toy as a kid... It's pretty easy to start on this and by the time he's able to safely use a soldering iron he'll totally be able to design and build circuts.

I'm an engineer at an electric utility and we use Snap Circuits to demonstrate basic concepts of electricity to middle- and high-schoolers. The kit has a lot of variety in the activities and is a simple means of experimenting with electricity. It's easy to assemble and reconfigure too, which is nice. I've spent hours at various public outreach events playing with this toy and would recommend it to kids and adults alike.

First of all props to you to introduce your son to electronics and ask to find a good method for him to learn it out of interest.

I remember having electronics kits which had a bunch of simple components connected by those metal spring terminals. They often came with booklets to go step by step through simple projects to gain some understanding.

Perhaps you could look at toy shops and see if they carry some educational electronics kits? I remember book shops also sold them though I'm not sure if they'd still.

I found this on Amazon, seems a bit different with magnets snapping together but looks like it goes step by step in explaining: Looks a bit expensive but not sure if that's different in the US.

Oh boy I even found one of those kits with the spring terminals:

Best of luck!

I am so jealous. In high school I had access to half a Snap Circuits kit.

u/jdavidbush · 2 pointsr/science

How about Electronic Snap Circuits?
I had something similar as a kid (although not nearly as cool) and enjoyed it a lot. I kinda miss it, actually. It has very good reviews on but is recommended for 8-14 year olds. However, that may not be a problem if you're helping, eh?

u/KungFuDabu · 2 pointsr/AskMen

I had something similar to this when I was a kid. It made electronics very easy to understand.

u/metalliska · 2 pointsr/EnoughLibertarianSpam

> I do agree that DIY needs to improve and be as foolproof as possible, but right now the efforts are pretty good, for example with epipen alternatives.

To me the "future" lies in comparing which simple plant-based herbs and medicines (which can be cross-referenced against the pubmed tests) have already been mastered by Native populations (such as aspirin, alcohol, other teas and herbal crap.

This, to me, would reduce the commercial aspect of treating health as a "Value".

Thus the DIY would supplement but not fully replace Big Pharma. But in my view, with equipment for testing, there's not much holding back tomorrow's adolescents from building a circuit to test impurities or other measurements.

u/Wildweed · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Start them off with something like Electronics Projects Kit. I'd be worried about what kind of person would watch a 7yo's online activities.

u/februaryleaf · 2 pointsr/dementia

There are usually a lot of “fidget” blanket kind of things on Etsy. Some might be more applicable than others.

If it’s specifically mechanical / electrical then maybe one of these circuit kits with big easy pieces:

u/UtahJarhead · 2 pointsr/Parenting

Got access to the network equipment? It'd be a pity if her access and only her access were affected periodically.

I bought a few different kinds of birthday and christmas presents for my older boy when he started spending too much time on a computer or tablet. I got him things like a microscope, snap circuits, rock tumblers, things that drive their mind. Being a sibling, that may not be so applicable to you, however.

In your situation, if you want change, you have to effect that change. You're going to have to be the one to provide alternative entertainment. Hanging out with her. Take her to do things outside. I don't think you'll get anywhere trying to just rule alongside of your parents.

u/Jehu920 · 1 pointr/FixedGearBicycle

What I mean is that just getting a bulb to glow is way too simple. There more complex stuff in those my first circuit sets.

u/billryethedrunkenguy · 1 pointr/askscience

I'd recommend a snap circuits board to teach them about electricity. Something like this.

Anything with simple machines (screw, ramp, pulley, wedge, lever, wheel, etc.) that they have to assembly is also a good idea but most will require the ability to use a screwdriver and limit their ability to experiment on their own. Those that don't will likely be a little lame like simple kinex and lego stuff.

Finally chemical sets are nice but will definitely require adult supervision.

u/mindtrashy · 1 pointr/TwoXChromosomes

i also enjoyed microscopes and scientific experiment kits when i was little. i think the best present i got was a "fun with electricity" cd rom! you could connect electrodes and a battery and create things like metal detectors and closed circuits. [here] ( is a similar kit i found on amazon

u/Ramast · 1 pointr/AskElectronics

This is the kit that I've used when starting to learn

I think it was awesome and the fact I didn't need breadboard really helped making quick projects easily without wires floating everywhere

u/discometalstu · 1 pointr/chicago

yup. a friend of mine got a kit like this for his five year old, and i happened to see it at the science store, too. i played with it for quite a while myself. it's something i'd get for my own kid, if i ever have one.
