Title: Lost in Space: Unplugged Programming

Your ship is damaged and must rely on mission control to lead you on a rescue mission to save one of your astronauts. Students will design the game board, create the instructions (algorithm), look for mistakes (debug), and finally run the mission (program) to save the astronaut. Resources such as a blank game board, instructions, task cards, and debriefing and reflection sheets provided.

This activity was created as a result of the DLCS COS Resource Development Summit.
