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.
We are starting a new thing! Every month we'll issue a challenge for our community. Winners each month will win cool swag like #MakeyMakey tshirts, posters, etc. Use #makeymakeychallenge to participate!

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.
Great voting machine challenge from @EdTechnocation 's students for the #makeymakeychallenge! They used the Digital Exit ticket as a guide! Great @scratch games and switches by the students! #makeymakey #edtech #makered https://t.co/zOoYpamimg pic.twitter.com/Nwp3MQFZDK— Makey Makey (@makeymakey) October 1, 2018
This looks so fun! Should we make this our next community challenge? A collaborative maze? We'd sure love to see lots of kids create these in schools and libraries! #makeymakeychallenge https://t.co/fWXTsjU677— Makey Makey (@makeymakey) September 29, 2018
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!
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:
