What can you do with this kit?
Create your very own working water feature with this fun kit (model number 38808). With its four spouts and handy container and base you can make a neat table top water fountain. With 22 parts the fun starts while you’re building it. Once you’ve assembled it add water into the container and switch the motor on, then sit back and enjoy your fountain.

What does this teach?
How can water travel upwards? With enough pressure it’s easy. Learn how pressure can affect water. The central shaft of the fountain has a motor inside it which spins to produce the pressure which forces the water to move out of the way. The only way out for the water is through the four small holes in the base, the pressure and narrow opening creates the upwards spouts. By altering the motor’s speed you could alter the water’s height and even set the spouts off in time to music or events.

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>).

This kit should be used with adult supervision and assistance and is suitable for children aged 8+.
Take care with electronics around fluids.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money Simple to set up which is a bonus but sadly the item just doesn't do what it says it will do. It claims the water will go up above 10cm but if we where lucky it went up around 3cm. Very disappointed and certainly not worth Ј9.99. We wouldn't recommend.
