Description:

In this activity, one person "programs" the other like a robot to move through a space, trying to get them to avoid obstacles and reach a goal. The idea is that computers and robots are programmed with step-by-step instructions. As the blindfolded "robot" moves through the space, the "programmer" writes down the steps for repeating later. This process of fixing problems in programs as they arise is known as "iterative testing."
