Underwater Labyrinth

Our maze is mainly composed of ecobricks. It is built in ecobrick structure from the maze’s foundation. Like, we used plastic bottles to fill up the concrete which is designed only for the bottles. The foundation of the maze should be constructed compactly towards the bed surface and will likely withstand the underwater pressure. The maze’s visual would contain a wide and thick structure for the researchers to experience a more realistic underwater maze and yet quite challenging.

• Why did we use ecobricks?

Ecobrick is a plastic bottle packed tight with used, clean and dry plastic to create a building block that can be used over and over again. Ecobricks can also be packed with other non-biological ‘waste’ that, un-contained, are toxic to the environment. Ecobricks are used to make modular furniture, garden spaces, walls and even full scale buildings. Ecobricks are a collaboration powered technology that provides a zero-cost solution for individuals, households, schools and communities. Ecobricks are an exciting way that we can take action today to stop pollution and start envisioning a healthier way of living with the cycles of life. Ecobricking is a deep solution for your plastic.

Here are the benefits of using ecobricks:

• First, plastic is an amazing material with incredible properties and it is a shame for it go to waste.
• Second when plastic does ‘go to waste’; it contaminates the ecosystems that sustain us and our fellow species.
• Third, Ecobricks embody regenerative principles that point us all in a healthy direction.

We concluded our design as an underwater labyrinth. Thus this labyrinth is a hunting game that will lead them to the treasure. So what the researchers would really do is for them to explore the maze and find the treasure in the end or exit of the crazy labyrinth. Thus each trapped edge of the labyrinth holds a pearl inside a seashell. So we have 23 pearls in total and also 23 shells. And there is only 1 pearl that is certainly the hidden deep-sea treasure. And what we are going to do is to divide the pearls. So there would be 12 silver pearls and 11 gold pearls. And we are going to put those pearls individually inside seashells in every trapped edge of the maze. Those 12 silver pearls would be a so called “hoax” treasure and so will be those 10 gold pearls. The pearl would specifically have a “treasure” marked on the outside portion of the pearl but is literally not the deep-sea treasure unless that part of the maze is leading to the exit. So if the researcher would find a pearl with a Treasure marked (either silver or gold in color) on it and he/she ended up on a trapped edge so that is not the end of the mission and the researchers will continue their quest in finding the hidden deep-sea treasure. The pearl/treasure would likely be gold and not silver and is an item that will be leading to the exit.
