    The maze is really instrumental in the 5th Dimension in organizing kids' activities, as compared to our summer program, in which kids can come in and participate and choose not to finish, choose not to engage, choose not to seek help, they can make the choice, it's too hard, I don't want to do this, I'll play something easier.  The maze organizes activity in a way in which the kids do seek help, and they do meet challenges, and they do persist.  That and the adventure cards absolutely are instrumental in making the 5th Dimension what it is.
