Did you know that the oldest known constructed labyrinths were built in ancient Egypt and Etruria (central Italy) around 4500 b.c.? (Source: https://www.encyclopedia.com/)
This week, the iSTEAM Team challenges you to build a labyrinth. A labyrinth is described as a single through-route with twists and turns but without branches, whereas a maze is a confusing pathway that has many branches, choices of path and dead-ends.
Using materials found at home, create a labyrinth for an object such as a marble, golf-ball, or any small object that can easily roll through the path. You can use materials such as LEGO, straws taped to cardboard or a paper plate, Q-tips, popsicle sticks, or cardboard to create the walls. Then, when finished, try to move your object through the labyrinth by picking up the base and leaning it right, left, forwards and backwards.
Good luck and have fun!
