Back in the Stone Age when I was a kid we did have smart kid toys but they were mostly limited to microscopes, telescopes, chemistry sets (yep, with real chemicals!), Radio Shack electronic lab kit, Heathkits (remember those, they’re making a comeback), Legos, and Erector sets. The Radio Shack electronic labs and Heathkits weren’t very well documented so, I created this blog to document Snap Circuits which are light years ahead of those old sets regarding documentation. I hope to create an interesting introduction to electronics using Elenco Electronics Snap Circuits parts and some analogies (yep, the water pipe, or electronic–hydraulic analogy) that I am able to scrounge up form the Web. I go by the Pen Name “Snaps” Provolone for the purpose of this blog (if you are a Stalone fan, I’m sure you’ll get the reference).
