Animals and Algorithms: Coding & Choreography

Moving MattersKC - Harlan Brownlee


Inspired by the flora and fauna of the earth’s biomes students explore the sequential nature of computers and coding. Starting with a creative movement activity, students explore one of the earth’s biomes and then working in small groups, students create a short simple sequential “habitats dance” that duplicates the structure and form of an algorithm.  Biomes offered for this workshop are:  

  • The Tropical Rainforest
  • The Southwestern Desert
  • The African Savanna
  • The Wetlands


Please wear comfortable clothing for movement!
