Maze Loops -, Course 2, Stage 6

Help the angry birds get the pigs and the zombies get their sunflowers!

As before, our mentors will throw names into a hat, and pair-up the students. One student drives and one navigates. After each step, the students switch roles and work through the next step.


Today, there are two activities.
