Let's compose my musical masterpiece in... Scratch

Let's code and dance with EV3

Mon, Nov 9, 2020 8:30 AM

Students work individually or in pairs to program their EV3 mindstorm Lego Robot to dance. They may create a dance for one or for two robots. Beginners can use mainly the movement blocks and some facial expressions and sounds while more advanced students can include some sensors as well. After students create their dance, they find suitable music for it. Although the task is based on EV3 mindstorm programming, it develops students' creativity and gives a lot of options for differentiation.
