Last Saturday, students from across the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District met at Soldotna Prep for the annual Mind A Mazes Problem Solving Competition, sponsored by the district’s Quest Program. Students are divided into teams where they take on many different kinds of problems. Students fill the roles of engineers when they are tasked to build something to solve spontaneous problems. The spontaneous problem is random at every event and students must think on the fly. The event brings hundreds of students together.
