This week is Computer Science Education week and we are celebrating by issuing a daily Hour of Code Challenge.
Our 3rd challenge for Hour of Code is to code your own maze in Scratch! Earlier this year, we challenged the community to create an oversized walkable maze as part of our fall challenge.
Welp, one of our educators went above and beyond! Fraser McKay not only made a large scale maze based on ye olde Makey Journey guide by David Alcoba, he hacked that guide and made a transportable roll-up maze!

One kid is earth, and the other is space bar. When kids hold hands, they complete the circuit and move a @scratch sprite.
And now I have a video to explain it. Thanks kids! 👍#makeymakeychallenge pic.twitter.com/rQwfYMVp2w
So today for the 3rd day of Computer Science Education week, we are challenging you and your students to create a maze in Scratch! If you so desire, you can even go one step further and challenge your students to add a physical computing element to their creations by creating a roll up maze!
