Special features

What can you do with this kit?
With 18 parts this kit is fun and easy to assemble, allowing you to build your own waterwheel. Then add water and watch as the motor turns the wheel to move the water. Mix and match triggers from other Connex sets to give you triggered waterwheels when a meteor lands (not included).

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A nice project but not as good as others in the range This item was a a little bit harder to build and does not work as well as the water wheel runs slowly as expected however as the wheel clips together there is a seam down the middle when the two prices join witch allows water yo escape and so the wheel does not function very well. This was a simple yet disappointing design flaw as I have been impressed with the other projects in the range.
