STEAM SNIPS™ include 73 different components, each can work with every other module in the set – all that is needed is imagination, inspiration and curiosity to build an infinite number of combinations of electronics products.

  • Power modules – everything requires energy
  • Input modules – sensors and detectors to sense, detect and collect environmental data – sound, light, temperature, humidity, motion,tilt, flame, IR distance, water moisture, ultrasonic, switches, buttons, dimmers
  • Output modules – produce motion, audio and visual effects that include LED lights, buzzers, speakers, motors, relays, servos and fans
  • Controller– controls output based on logic and can be combined with other programmable modules to adjust input and output parameters.

Along the way, kids will learn what is required to bring inventions and ideas to life:
