Inventing with Makey Makey

 Grades 4-7 

Using the Makey Makey, we will turn everyday objects into tools to interface with our computers. Turn any conductive material into a keyboard key to build pianos out of bananas, game controllers from gummy worms, or turn your classmates into keys! We will learn the basics of electricity, circuitry, and capacitive sensing in this inventing class.

What kids make...

  • fruit pianos
  • custom game controllers
  • evil genius inventions

What kids learn...

  • series and parallel circuits
  • electricity
  • conductors and insulators
  • capacitive sensing

Curriculum Focus
