The kit comes with four boards to set the experiments up on, and instructions on how to wire up 125 combinations, from simple three component kits up to ten component circuits. Want to build a circuit that releases bubbles if you slip on a wire maze? This and much more is possible with the Connex 38913.

What does this teach?
Discover how input and output components work and how to create circuits with more than one of each. Experiment with circuits and learn about parallel and series connections. The Connex 125 Scientific Challenge Electronic Kit comes with 78 parts to create and build with. The creativity doesn’t have to stop there, as this kit is compatible with components from other Connex kits. No soldering is required with this kit, all the components can be connected using the supplied wires fitting into the springs on the board. All you need are seven AA batteries (sold separately Order Code <L39BF>)

This kit should be used with adult supervision and assistance, and is suitable for children aged 8 and above.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for keeping older kids busy Bought for Christmas present for 10yr old grandson with autism and who loves construction projects. He will just love this challenging scientific electronic Connex.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great educational toy After visiting the Science Museum with my 3 year old, I found he was particularly interested in playing with circuits, buzzers, LEDs etc. This toy is a great starter kit (to do together as it says age 8+). Takes just minutes to assemble the projects and they give hours of fun. Slightly misleading that it's billed as 125 activities but they are just variants on a core 4. Still, well worth the cash and much loved in our house.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Faulty part Bought as a Christmas gift for 7 year old son, sadly the bubble blower motor didn't work, so kit was returned. The same motor was faulty in the replacement kit so that went back too and we got a full refund. The customer service was excellent throughout the handling of both returns, just a very disappointing product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from no instructions Bought from a store yesterday. Opened this morning. No instructions so a very disappointed little boy who just spent his christmas money on it. Now we have a 50 mile round trip to return this. Not particularly pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Educational and perfect for boys of 10 and 8 to set up and discover on their own. A birthday present for a 10 year old who has enjoyed discovering how to manipulate the technical operations with satisfaction and great enjoyment.

We have been given this kit as a present for my son, but the instructions are missing! Is it possible to get the instructions online or via an email? Otherwise we'll have to try and get it back to the person who gave it and see if they can exchange it!

It would be useful to add a link to the download manual. I have seen reference to it being available in the Questions and in a Review but I cannot find the products or downloads page on your site!
