Communication Delay

Construct a maze in your classroom and have a blindfolded scientist act as a space rover, maneuvering unfamiliar terrain while another scientist plays commander. Classmates record the number of occurrences of the commander having to direct the rover and how much time it takes to get through the entire maze. This activity is related to the remote communication that must occur in order to study deep space.
