Engineers solve puzzles.

A maze is a collection of paths that usually have an entrance and a goal. Some require persistent following. Some require resourceful problem solving. Some mazes lead to treasures. Some to mysteries. Some mazes are built to entertain. Some are designed to test the courage of heroes.

Construct unusual mazes. Construct a tiny castle with secret passages for marbles to escape. Construct a touch maze for friends to solve blind folded. Construct a hydrophobic maze the a drop of water can navigate. Draw a complex maze on gridded paper then construct your work in wood with a Laser Cutter. Assemble, decorate, play.

In the afternoon, assemble Pizza Box mazes with a group to contribute to an arcade mazes which will include labyrinths you solve with balance.

Fee: $70
