Then examples of contemporary mazes - found in our daily life, and those that are specially created.

Info on how to make a Geometric Maze and a Random Roxie Reversing Maze (can include a video). Can show the creation of several apps: Roxie's a-MAZE-ing Vacation Adventure and Roxie's Puzzle Maze, including a one-minute video trailer. Time for Q&A.
