The idea behind this game is to show the process of how an output looks after the conversion of the input when it is processed. It may seem hard but it is quite simple. We are going to illustrate that in our example. The rule shows the input sequence ABC, it passes through a lab, measuring a jug that has chemicals in it and gets the result CBC.
The process rule simply works when the sequence ABC passes through the jug of chemicals, the letter A is omitted and replaced with the letter C with no changes in the second and third letters which is evident in the answer CBC.
The same rule applies to the algorithm pineapple, aronia, banana which is the sequence. When it passes through the jug of chemical, the sequence of the fruit is processed and the output will be banana, aronia, and banana in the empty cell on the right. This shows the chemical converted the pineapple to banana.
Processes are shown with images like boiling pot, chemicals or explosion etc. this is because process represents things in our lives that bring about significant changes to the structure of what is put inside. In this way, it is a good exercise to engage the mind of kids by showing them images they love and push them into the world of processes.
We have made several versions of process games that involve one, two and three step processes. The two and three step process game are a bit more tasking than the one-step process because the result is not so obvious and a lot of rules need to be applied in the right order.
