Here’s the next step in maze design–collecting ideas and images and taping them to my closet door next to my desk. I use these as inspiration for the preliminary sketches, and to see which elements will work visually. I’m also looking at ideas for incorporating math and science for our field trips. It’s easy to spend too much time on this phase because it’s so fun…

Okay, so far the maze will be incorporating GRIN technologies (Genetics, Robotics, Information Technology, Nanotechnology); a cyborg, a carbon nanotubes, some da Vinci images, including the Vitruvian Man and a perpetual motion machine. And steampunk…lots of steampunk.

Next step: start the actual design (this year I’m using iDraw on my mac.)
