The purposes of this study were 1) to develop and validate the efficiency of an experiencedbased learning center model for pneumatics instruction and 2) to compare the learning achievements between the developed model and usual instruction. The samples were the second-year undergraduate students majoring in Industrial Technology, Faculty of Industrial Education, Rajamangala University of Technology Suvarnabhumi, in the academic year 2018. The samples were selected by using a purposive sampling method. They were divided into 2 groups, experimental and control groups. There were 22 students in each group. The developed model was evaluated by 12 experts. The model consisted of 5 components in which they were 1) the analysis of experienced-based learning center model, 2) the development of tools used for the center, 3) the development of experiences, 4) the evaluation of each station in the experienced-based learning center, and 5) the testing of learning experience applications. The results of evaluation indicated that 5 components were suitable at a high level. The efficiency validation of the developed model was at 81.82/84.72, in which there were 18 of 22 students passed the examination. Data were analyzed by using Chi-Square and indicated that the students studied with the developed model passed the examination more than the criterion of 70% at the significant level of .05. Moreover, the learning achievements testing by using the Wilcoxon Signed Ranks Test showed that the learning achievement studied with the developed model was higher than the usual instruction at the significant level of .05.
