Makey Makey at home or at school: Free learning activities, ideas for loaning out kits, and more!

Announcing New Classes for Makers At Home!

June 24, 2020

Last week we soft released our first class in a series of maker classes designed for students who have already explored our beginner course, but now want to go a little further in making fun inventions to use with Makey Makey at home. 

This is series of classes for students who've finished our Beginner Level Makey Makey class or makers who already have basic knowledge about Makey Makey. (These classes work best for kids and inventors age 8 and up!)

In the beginner classes we focused on learning how circuits work, exploring Makey Makey, and making drawings as the signal to play piano apps. But did you know that you can create complex sensors with Makey Makey?

Lesson One: Crafting and Designing Switches

The first class in the Maker series focuses on crafting and designing switches out of everyday material.

We want to thank Scrappy Circuits for inspiring our binder clip switch! Learn more about Scrappy Circuits in our Let's Invent Webisode with Michael Carroll

Lesson Two: Hack a Toy

The second class in the maker series shares how to hack a toy with conductive sewing material. But don't worry! If you don't have access to conductive thread and fabric tape, we share an alternative method for using the components in your Makey Makey kit to hack a stuffed toy!  

Also included in this class is a challenge to invent your own body systems toy. 

We would like to thank Josh Burker and Patrick Benfield for the work these educators have done using Makey Makey to teach human body systems.
