COMPETITIONS Comp

Gravity maze

This gravity-powered logic maze is sure to put your visual perception and reasoning skills to the test. The colourful, translucent towers can be arranged in many ways. For each challenge, you’ll have to manoeuvre the maze in your mind and build a path that will successfully carry your marble to its target!

To enter the competition, use the force of gravity to create a work of art. This could involve splats, drips or pendulum swings: it’s entirely up to your imagination. Make sure you put a protective sheet under your workspace before you start, because gravity painting can get messy!
