Primary schools students code and dance their code in Genova Italy

By Anna Maria Rigon, teacher at Govi primary school in Genova, Italy

In 2019, Govi primary school, belonging to Sturla comprehensive school, joined EU Code Week by organising a flash mob using block path programming.

Thirteen classes with around 300 students from 6 to 10 years old and their teachers met in the school garden and danced “Plug and Play” together.

The students had memorised the dance movements with the help of blocks, following a “dance code”. This allowed students to practice their creativity while programming dance.

The collaboration between the students was interesting and efficient. Older children taught to younger ones the dancing blocks programme, through an unplugged activity.

The final product was shared online and posted on the website of Sturla comprehensive school.
