Can you defeat the maze?
Test the steadiness of your hands with this amazing maze challenge and time how long it takes to successfully complete it. Then challenge friends and family to beat your time. Create a different maze each time just reshape the wire for a harder or easier challenge, just make sure the switch is off before removing the metal wire. With 18 parts this kit is simple and easy to build and you can carry it with you.

A great lesson on circuit design
An electronic circuit is not complete unless there is a full loop. In the Connex 38802N Maze Kit you build an electronic circuit that is almost complete all it requires is for one last piece to be connected. When the wand touches the wire this completes the circuit and power can reach the spinning arm which rings the alarm.

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>).

*N.B. This kit should be used with adult supervision and assistance and is suitable for children aged 8 and over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Young Engineer I bought this as a Christmas gift for my six year old grand son. He loves making models and thought he would enjoy assembling this kit. It was a great to see him putting the pieces together and making it work.
