Teaching electronics can be a daunting task no matter what age or ability level you're working with. There's choosing the various components, creating projects and activities, as well as the massive task of designing lesson plans and materials. The Circuits 101 Classroom line was designed as a complete classroom solution for teaching electronics. Not only do we give teachers a robust set of materials to use but we also provide the lesson plans, projects, activities, diagrams, and videos.
Circuits 101 Sets comes with anywhere from 4 to 25 student boxes filled with electronics parts and supplies. Teachers can easily hand out the boxes and use our free curriculum and resources to quickly and easily run lessons. Every Set comes with a Teacher Box which includes a full set of supplies as well as additional batteries, tape, and informational cards. Each student box is a complete set of supplies intended for one group of students. (We recommend groups of no more than three students.)
The Brown Dog Gadget's curriculum is always being updated and improved on. They've aligned their lessons to Common Core and NGSS standards for easy integration into any new or existing curriculum. In addition to lesson plans, the curriculum also includes activity pages, assessments, diagrams, and videos for classroom use.
As with all Crazy Circuits Kits, the Classroom Sets require no soldering. Parts are connected in a brick based building environment via our special Maker Tape conductive tape. The only additional tools you'll need are scissors.
