You can see that I had to simplify the design slightly because dealing with angles was slightly beyond me at this moment in time (in the end I had to lay out numbered blocks at the sides and plan it on graph paper to make sure the layout was correct) BUT I am happy to say that the map worked beautifully but only a few students managed to navigate their way to the centre (it is a really difficult maze and one that I have tried in real life too which was very difficult to navigate). Once a few students had managed it, I gave those students a head start and then teleported the remaining students for a race back to the start!
When some student go stuck, I also projected onto the whiteboard screen the overall view so that students could get a general idea of where they were (and how they were doing)
A good extension task would be to get students to design and build their own mazes.
Below is a real example of just how efficient (and fast) robots can be at navigating a maze!
