MazeRun Ball Maze
Explore gravity, friction, energy, and acceleration as students assemble a maze and have classmates try to solve it!
Start by splitting the class into two teams. The first team then has three minutes to build a maze by placing an assortment of barriers and hills on a tarp, as well as indicating the beginning and end of the maze with patches. The other team then gets the chance to try and solve the maze by maneuvering a small foam ball through it. Through the process, students will discuss what the maze challenging, what one team did differently than the other to solve the maze faster, and identify real world examples that rely on similar mechanics observed during the lesson.
All 3"W barriers are made of high-density foam and covered in durable Cordura nylon. They attach to the tarp via hook-and-loop fasteners. Long-lasting 200 denier polyester tarp is 4'L x 4'W and includes polypropylene handles with x-box stitching for enhanced durability.
