Soldering can be a really tricky thing to master. Between having to have a clean workspace, a nearby electrical outlet, and a huge risk for burns, it sometimes feels like an accident waiting to happen.
Luckily, there is a project that is easy, fun for the entire family and solder free. The Snap Circuit Rover allows you to easily snap together electronic parts to create a working remote-controlled vehicle. It’s truly a fantastic way to teach your kids about electrical engineering while building a toy that can bring your beer from the kitchen to your tennis ball couch. The manufacturer, Elenco, makes a whole range of robots and vehicles that don’t require solder.
