Puzzle Ball "Garbage In Garbage Out"
Two class times:
Ages 10 and up
Microprocessors neither think nor reason. They simply follow instructions given to them by software programmers. The smallest error in such a set of instructions can lead to large errors in the final results produced by the computers. In this lab activity students will focus on instruction set writing, as well as problem solving and teamwork. Working in teams of two, students disassemble a puzzle ball and write a step-by-step instruction guide for reassembly. Teams trade instruction sheets and follow another teams instruction set to reassemble their puzzle ball.
