Lockdown Puzzle – Word Ladder

Here’s another puzzle to get you thinking as we move into the weekend.  David Hunt, PGCE Computer Science Subject Leader in the School of Education, has this time devised a word ladder themed computer coding style challenge.

Word Ladder

A word ladder is a puzzle where you are trying to change one word into another, one letter at a time. The words you make at each stage must be valid entries in a dictionary.

For example, turning MAN into APE:-
