Eighth graders in Mike Colletta’s technology class at Accompsett Middle School are learning about algorithms as the kickoff to their Project Lead the Way unit on automation and robots. The students were tasked with making sandwiches for one another as a way to follow the steps of an algorithm. Students had to list the ingredients and each step in the proper order to get their partner to make the sandwich the way they wanted it. Students had the chance to rewrite the algorithm during the lesson.
