Learn the shocking secrets of electronic circuits as you use a Makey Makey to build pianos, game controllers, and wacky keyboards!
It’s all about electricity and CIRCUITS! Think of Makey Makey like an external computer keyboard, but with all the keys ripped off so you can mess with the circuits underneath. Using the Makey Makey, you can add any conductive material to the circuit and turn it into a keyboard key! The possibilities are endless! We can build pianos out of bananas, game controllers from gummy worms, or even turn your classmates into keys!
This class is for nerds who are creative, inventive, and sometimes silly! Anyone who finds circuits intriguing and wants to learn more about how electronics work will have a blast in this shockingly fun class!
Nerds in this class make some shockingly awesome electrical creations! Using the Makey Makey and basic circuitry, they can make things like fruit pianos and custom game controllers! We even make some cool artsy circuits like spin art machines. Of course, students are also free to make their own evil genius inventions >:)
Nerds in this class learn about a handful of cool electronics and electrical engineering topics. We will explore electricity, series and parallel circuits, conductors and insulators, and capacitive sensing. We’ll also look at how we can apply some of these technologies into our own creations during class activities!
Your nerd will build and discover like these nerds have.
