  • amazes have a middle.

  • Lots of paths, an exit, a way to get out and an entrance.

  • A way to get in.

  • The rules of a maze are simple.

  • Find in the middle by choosing the right paths.

  • Should we give it a go?

  • And I'm wearing one of my special cameras so you can see what I see.

  • First we go through the entrance.

  • Look, there are lots of paths leading in lots of different directions.

  • Oh, no.

  • Can you see?

  • There are some places where paths meet.

  • When two paths meet, we say it is a junction.

  • I think we should go left.

  • Come on.

  • This way.

  • Yeah.

  • Oh, no.

  • It's a blocked par.

  • It's called a dead end.

  • And it means we need to go back the way we came.

  • Where are we going?

  • We must be nearly there.

  • Mhm.

  • Yeah, we found the middle.

  • That was so much fun.

  • There are big mazes like this one, but you might have played with a small maize instead.

  • Just like this one.

  • This small maize works in the same way as the big maze.

  • Can you see all the paths and junctions?

  • But instead of me trying to find my way around it.

  • It's got a small metal ball inside called a ball bearing.

  • But do you know how wooden maze like this one is made?

  • Let's find out.

  • Firstly, try and find the exit.

  • Watch more on BBC I player.
