aMAZEing Projects: Program your Partner

Your students can learn about coding/programming – no technology needed!

Create a simple maze on the floor with tape. Blindfold one partner, the robot. The other partner is the coder, and can only give the following commands:

Turn right ___ degrees (or to 3:00  if that works better for your students)

Turn right ___ degrees (or to 3:00)

Take ___ giant steps

Take ___ tiny steps


To make it more difficult, have coders write down their code first, and then execute it with their robot. Partners can switch off improving the code and being robots until they successfully navigate the maze.
