Have some students act as robots while their peers give them instructions to teach students how to interact with and think like machines.

  • One activity students could program the robot to do is build a tower of blocks. When the student uses terms not in the robot’s vocabulary, have the robot express confusion.
  • This will teach students to be precise when programming since machine language is very literal.
