Elenco Electronics, Inc., is pleased to announce the addition of Snaptricity to its Snap Circuit educational toy product line.  This kit teaches about magnetism and how electricity is used in an everyday home environment.

The Snaptricity kit provides over 40 parts including a meter, electromagnet, motor, lamps, switches, a fan and a compass.  It provides knowledge about magnetic fields, how switches control the lights in homes and how series and parallel circuits affect electricity.  A color-coded manual uses over 75 projects to demonstrate these principles of electricity.
