This programme familiarises students with some of the key concepts of position and direction in a series of maze related activities.
Students will come up with a maze of their own design using Keva blocks. Their progress is recorded via time lapse video. They will create an object out of Lego which they will move through the maze and record its journey via a stop motion animation app.
This engaging programme will help develop lateral thinking in a fun environment. It teaches children to think in three dimensions and develops problem-solving skills. Students will need to organise and plan their construction using critical thinking and creativity.
Note: BYO iPads - minimum six required per class.
