Modular Circuits Basic

Product Code: EM-3535


These circuit modules are designed specifically for introductory circuits investigations. For students who have never wired a circuit, this modular system makes it easy for them to see their circuit physically laid-out exactly as it appears in their circuit diagram.

Each module connects mechanically to another by sliding the tabs into each other. It works on any tabletop. No special surface is required. To electrically connect two modules, students insert a jumper clip, which emphasizes that an electrical connection has been made. The large size of the modules (8 cm x 8 cm) enables all the students around the table to see and understand the completed circuit.

Two different Modular Circuits Kits are available.

This product, the Basic Modular Circuits Kit is a lower cost, introductory set with fewer components than the Essential Physics Modular Circuits Kit, and the Wireless Voltage Sensor and Wireless Current Module are not included. Perform two of the experiments listed below with just the Basic Modular Circuits Kit. Add the Wireless Voltage Sensor and Wireless Current Module to the kit to perform all five experiment listed below.

The Essential Physics Modular Circuits Kit includes more components, such as the Wireless Current Module and Wireless Voltage Sensor, and facilitates a wider range of activities and experiments.


  • Kirchhoff’s Laws
  • Batteries and Bulbs Circuits
  • Switches/Open/Closed Circuits

Perform These Experiments

  • Resistance and Ohm’s Law
  • Series/Parallel Circuits
  • Circuits and Electricity
  • Voltage and Batteries
  • Electric Power and Energy
