The Department of Computer Science at the University of Iowa designed a new interdisciplinary, project-based course in collaboration with the Department of Dance in which students designed and implemented a 45-minute dance recital performed by autonomous humanoid robots.

I created a dance routine for this performance, and continued to work with the robots through the University to create several theatrical skits, as well as to do outreach to encourage children to continue STEM education.
