Fall Makey Makey Maze Challenge!

October 18, 2018

Here at Makey Makey we wanted to start a new community thing where we challenge our maker educators to try out a new idea with Makey Makey each month.

Our last challenge was to create your own exit ticket (or polling system) and it was a smashing success! See the original challenge and some of the best examples created by our Makey Makey community in this blog post.  

Our Next Challenge 

Our next challenge to the Makey Makey community is to Makey your own giant maze and obstacle course! The challenge for October and November is to make a collaborative maze. You can create real life obstacles or obstacles in Scratch, create a Maze for your Sphero, create timers in Scratch, whatever you want! The sky is the limit on what you create!

Makey Your Own

How to Makey: Here is an old school guide  by David Alcoba from Vailets HackLab on creating your own Makey Makey Maze Journey. Click on "The Makey Journey" for a full guide on how to make your own maze and obstacle course. (Note this guide already has a Scratch maze game, but feel free to code your own and let students code their own!) 

Share Your Makey: We wanna see what you come up with and make! Share your project on Twitter using the hashtag #makeymakeychallenge.

Help for your Makey: If you or your students get stuck, here are some ways to collaboratively problem solve:
