Review Highlights:

The Teknikio Sparking Sense Kit teaches and shows how electic currents work and provides children with practice following written instructions. The product also introduces the basics of design thinking (empathize, define - the problem, ideate, prototype, and test). The kit encourages creative thinking, and allows teachers an effective way to introduce more advanced concepts such as functional design, force, velocity, and voltage.

The product provides a creative way to learn about circuits, while producing something interesting. My 11 year old enjoyed the buzzer circuit the best. This product is a very good introduction to electric currents and what can be done with them. This product is one of the better STEM products out there.

I appreciated the fact that my 11 year old son was able to use this product with little supervision.

This is an excellent product.
