Yenka Sequences is an innovative tool for introducing computer control and programming. Control dancers by making simple flowcharts, and learn about sequences of instructions, loops and functions.
Modelling a dance routine is a great way to learn about computer programming. Both require a set of steps to be carried out in the right order. Loops can be used to repeat steps, and a chorus routine is ideal for teaching about functions.
