Peanut butter and jelly: The edible algorithm

Peanut butter and jelly: The edible algorithm

DESCRIPTION

The Arizona Chief Science Officer (CSO) program, supported by State Farm, gets students involved in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) activities, while teaching them about careers in these fields. During a CSO institute, State Farm volunteers used a childhood favorite – the PB&J, to demonstrate the importance of algorithms. Students plotted the steps needed to build the perfect PB&J, then shared their algorithms with volunteers – who played the role of a computer.
