What does this teach?
Water wheels have been around since the romans and can be used to move a boat through water by pushing the water back. Wheels like this can also be used to lift the water from low areas to high for farming as the wheel allows you to use much less effort than you would normally require.
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 one AA battery (sold separately Order Code <L43AL>).
This kit should be used with adult supervision and assistance and is suitable for children aged 8+.
Take care with electronics around fluids.
