At The Young Women’s Leadership School of Astoria, Andrea Chaves and Brittany Greve are introducing girls to computer science through dance in their Digital Dance Project. The project incorporates multiple aspects of technology and dance to make a piece of art. Over the course of two weeks, students worked in groups to choreograph the dance, animate the set design and code Sphero robots to accompany dancers on stage. In doing this, Andrea and Brittany hope that students will experience technology in a new light and see the endless opportunities available in the computer science field. Check out the photos below to see how the project came to life!
