Build your own water pump and watch the water level rise, taking the ball with it until it raises the roof. The Connex 38807 kit pulls water in through the bottom tubing with the pump then when it reaches the top tube gravity pulls it back into the water tray creating a closed loop. With 23 pieces this is a fun kit to make and play with. What does this teach?
Learn all about how forces and pressure affects water in this educational kit. Water will only naturally run downhill with gravity acting on it. In order to make water move upwards there needs to be other forces, usually in the form of pressure. The pressure of the water pushes against atmospheric pressure and gravity so when the water pressure is higher the water moves upwards. If the pressure is high enough it can move other objects that floats with it, like the ball in this game and wells use this to bring water up from deep underground. Switch the motor off and watch the water slowly fall again as gravity becomes more powerful than the water pressure.Mix and match with Connex
Be creative with your kit by mixing components with other Connex kits (take care to match power requirements). No soldering is required with this kit, all the components can be connected using the supplied wires fitting into the springs on the board. No need to worry about losing pieces, the kit comes in a box that doubles as a base to assemble the kit on and a storage box when you tidy it away. This kit requires two AA batteries (sold separately Order Code <L43AL
