Coding a Sandwich Builds Important Skills

Middle school coding and robotics students developed algorithms to code the steps to make a sunflower seed butter and jelly sandwich. Working in teams, they wrote their codes and asked their teacher, Ms. Wilkins, with ingredients in hand, to try each step. The students quickly discovered that coders must use very precise language and each step must be carefully considered. Details such as untying a twist tie, opening the bag, and taking out exactly two pieces of bread were forgotten, and then included, as the students worked through their carefully-crafted codes!
