Have you applied velcro on the back side of the mission where it comes in contact with the mat. For placement, see X's on the mat. Connector's should work, however while putting two adjoining ends you may need to bend it lightly. PS: My team noticed couple of X's on the instructions were on wrong place. Just place velcro to the closest spot.

I have a question about the "test levees" mission model. We built it and thought maybe we had put it together wrong, but have checked and double checked, and it's right. But it is very temperamental. The flexible black pieces, that go between the connectors, don't seem bent the way they do in the picture. My question is, should I try to mold them a bit to be curved in that direction? And any suggestions for making it work better? Thanks!
