From Myth to Magic: Crafting Peace Mandrakes With Tinkercad and Makey Makey by Elena Vercher

February 12, 2024


Share Your Magical Creation! 🪄

Elena Vercher is an amazing Makey Makey ambassador. She's just released a really great new project that combines Tinkercad with Makey Makey and Scratch.

Check out her Instructables project to explore the mythical world of mandrakes, and learn how to blend creativity, problem-solving, and technical skills to craft unique mandrake creations to help achieving a better world. By integrating STEAM elements (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics), students will design and 3D print a mandrake pot using Tinkercad, build an interactive mandrake figure with upcycled materials, and bring it to life using Makey Makey and Scratch programming.

SDG Alignment:

This mandrake project aligns with key Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) such as Quality Education (SDG 4), Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure (SDG 9), Responsible Consumption and Production (SDG 12), Climate Action (SDG 13), and Partnerships for the Goals (SDG 17). By merging creativity and technology, we contribute to a sustainable, innovative, and interconnected future.
