University Outreach Program

Snaptron supports university and educational programs that encourage a hands-on approach to engineering design. The University Outreach Program is designed to educate aspiring engineering students about momentary tactile dome switch technology. This program provides engineering professors, staff and students with samples of our various dome styles for lab and prototyping purposes. In addition to samples, Snaptron offers a design guide document that details engineering principles surround our technologies – everything from PCB pad design, to dome characteristics, to plating and contact resistance.

Students and teachers may also want to visit our friends at the Boldport Club. Members of the Boldport Club receive a unique electronics project once a month. Projects are designed to be engaging, challenging, entertaining, collectable, and to promote exploration and discovery through the use of electronics. Information about this electronics club can be found at, and membership discounts for students at
