I also have concerns about the "maze". Actually, I'm not concerned with the idea of the maze itself as much as our lack of purpose. I know that this is supposed to be informal, but I think if I had more of an idea about how the program is benificial to the kids, I'd do a better job. I'm concerned because on the first day the kids got a letter from the wizard telling them they were entering the fifth dimension, that they would be able to speak to kids all over the world and that they'd be going through steps in the maze. In reality, none of these things are happening. We're playing with kids and hopefully they're learning something, but I'm afraid that they'll learn not to believe us because so far we haven't followed through on our promises.
