Modular Circuits

Part of what sets Modular Circuits apart is that it allows students to move from circuit diagrams to functioning circuits easily and keep the focus on learning rather than tracing a nest of wires.

Available Sets

Basic Modular Circuits


Eliminate the mess of wires with this ideal system for learning basic circuits. Can be used as a standalone with a multimeter or add PASCO sensors to collect data in real time.

Modular Circuits for Essential Physics


Eliminate the mess of wires with this ideal system for learning basic circuits. This system has more components than the Basic Set and includes the sensors. It is also a component of the Essential Physics program.
