We have been working hard to keep our Autumn Glory schedule of events updated! Keep checking back in with us to see updates:

The mazes are a recreation of two carpeted mazes featured in outdoor science and math-themed playground at the Museum of Science and Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. The first fifty students completing both mazes will be presented with a commemorative “I Solved the Stockholm Mazes” Autumn Glory badge.
