Abstract

Computational thinking skills are linked with success in learning to program. There is evidence that aspects of dance and choreography may improve cognitive skills related to computational thinking. This project aims to investigate the relationship and develop activities which enhance computational thinking skills and encourage girls to engage with programming.
