What our experts think
The colourful Q-BA-Maze is a great way to engage children in logical thinking and engineering concepts. We found it encouraged lots of trial and error learning as the children worked out how to connect the pieces in different ways.
It was great to see the children working collaboratively to try and solve the issues and make their models work properly as this is fantastic for their communication skills. We like that children can follow the instructions or come up with their own marble runs, as this really encourages their creativity and problem-solving skills.
