A combined code and music challenge

Vickie Bacon

Designed for KS1, KS2, KS3, KS4, FE, HE and beyond

Robot Dancing

Your challenge is to compose an original dance track in Garageband and program a Meebot robot to dance along in time.

Can you create a signature dance move that will impress onlookers? Can you compose a dance track that will have everyone toe-tapping?

Your challenge is to choreograph a series of dance moves that synchronise perfectly with your music.

Robot Dancing is a great activity to tackle as a team. While some may gravitate towards coding, others may prefer music composition. But who's going to bring it all together?
