Twig pruners may be an option. Gardeners will have these.

PS I taught my students to use coping saws for jobs like this.
>> I'm working on a project with my students that uses
>> 1/4" dowel rods - they are thin engough to score and
>> snap in two with your hands(which is effective, but
>> time consuming) but I"m afraid that my 5th & 6th
>> graders will try to break them without scoring and
>> make them splinter off. There are just too many of
>> the rods for me to cut them all this way myself and
>> plus I was looking forward to having the kids do the
>> measuring - they are 36" dowels that need to be cut
>> down to either 12" or 18" inches - but 5 dowels times
>> 200 kids is more scoring and snapping than I think I
>> can handle.
>> In any case I was wondering if anyone could suggest
>> some kind of wire cutter or snipper that I could use
>> to cut these with.
