Sprintronics Act Two is a large expansion that requires Act One to play. This set Includes a second book of puzzles, as well as advanced gadgets. The two kits integrate seamlessly together. The Act Two kit begins where Act One leaves off.

Spintronics is the next release from Upper Story, publisher of the excellent Turing Tumble. Whereas that game taught principles of computer science, Spintronics teaches principles of engineering, such as circuits, resistance, voltage, and switches. Ready to get those mental (and physical) gears turning?

Escalate what you've learned from Spintronics Act One as you solve 82 more fun, challenging puzzles from intermediate to advanced difficulty. The basis of all Spintronics builds is a battery, which runs on a pull-string. As the battery spins, it turns a gear unit, and using lengths of plastic chain, other mechanisms can be connected to it, including resistors, switches, ammeters, junctions, and capacitors.

Spintronics does for electrical engineering what Turing Tumble did for computer science: it takes concepts that seem mysterious to kids, abstracts away the complexity, and gamifies them into something fun and addicting. It lets players not only see, but feel how machines work.

Spintronics is fun, fascinating, easy-to-learn, and irresistible to play. 

Includes: 1 x Act Two puzzle book | 2 x Spintronic transistors | 1 x 55 H Spintronic inductor | 1 x 500 Ω Spintronic resistor | 4 x Spintronics junctions | 1 x 1.2 mF Spintronic capacitor/voltmeter | 300 x Chain links | 3 x Base tiles | 6 x Tile connectors

Suitable for kids aged 8 years and older
