Fun With Snap Circuits 3: Get Wired!
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head. –William Shakespeare (Sonnet 130)
Snap Circuits has several ways to connect the various electronic components together. Each component could be snapped to another, but often, becuase the components are different physical sizes or may be separated by a distance, you will need to use a Snap Conductor–the snap circuits equivalent of an electrical wire.
In the water pipe analogy, electrical wiring is the pipe through which the current flows. Some Snap Circuits conductors actually look like electrical wires with snap connectors attached at the ends and are called “Jumper Wires.”
Mostly, however you will use “Conductors” with one or more snaps.
Snap Circuits Conductors come with a single snap all the way up to seven snaps. A conductor with a single snap is often used when electronic components need to be stacked on top of each other). A Conductor with seven snaps may be used used when two electronic components are far from one another on the base grid.
