Making Arduino Coding a Snap!

Ages 12 and up

From the manufacturer:

Snapino® is an introduction to the open-source Arduino hardware-software coding environment embraced by the Maker community worldwide. Arduino is the most popular microcontroller used by Makers and Do-It-Yourselfers to MAKE and DO. No need for breadboarding since Snap Circuits® snap together and make prototyping circuit designs a snap!


  • The Snapino® module is a fully-compatible Arduino UNO board with all normal features and is compatible with other Arduino shields and components. - Snapino can be used with other Snap Circuits® sets to make larger circuits.
  • Includes 20 projects that gradually introduce you to Arduino coding with sketches (programs) already written for operating the 14 included parts. Additionally, you will find sketches written for Snapino® with other Snap Circuits® sets so you can keep experimenting.
  • Includes: 1 Arduino UNO compatible Snapino Module - 6 Snap Circuit Modules - 3 Snap Wires - 1 Snap Jumper Wire - 1 Snap to Pin Wire - 1 USB Cable - 1 9 Volt Battery Holder - 1 Manual

9v battery required, not included.

Our 2 bits:

Snapino is a powerful learning tool, but may not be right for every kiddo. It has a fairly steep learning curve (steeper than most Snap Circuit products). We’ve heard that the most successful kids with Snapino have a grown up or older sibling already familiar with Arduino coding that will work through the projects with them, and help them understand how the coding language works.
