Mice have helped to move science forward for over 100 years. Each day they help researchers worldwide to study and design treatments for human illnesses such as cancer, heart disease and malaria. Interestingly, mice, like us, are mammals and share around 80% of our genes. Mice mazes have been uses to track behaviour characteristics and memory development.

The children in Year 3 were challenged to work collaboratively to design and build their own mouse maze out of plasticine. They identified and incorporate all the five areas of STEAM during this challenge and link it to the Term 2 STEAM theme of Super Natural. The children had a lot of fun competing for the fastest completion time of the maze and worked hard to correct any design faults which they came across throughout the process.
