Physical Activities include:


In 2017-18 as a part of HHMI CRE project, Lawrence Technological University / Robofest launched CS+PA (learn Computer Science with Physical Activities), an innovative program in which K-12 students learn physical activities such as mathematical dance, and then learn to animate photographs of themselves dancing using SCRATCH. Some example student project videos are:



In 2018, we extended MathDance to animate photographs of themselves dancing to the music they composed & created using Scrtach programming. This program was also sponsored by HHMI/CRE and some example videos are:



In 2019, we will be teaching students to code VEX IQ robots to do the same dance using Scrtach like "Robot Mesh" language. Sponsored by Robofest and HHMI/CRE.
