Getting Started with Makey Makey

January 28, 2021

New to Makey Makey? 

This school year is full of challenges, but Makey Makey® makes it easy to integrate STEM into your curriculum in ways that will be fun and engaging for students. Makey Makey can be used in any subject area to help students grasp new concepts through tangible, interactive, hands-on activities. We’ve developed beginner and intermediate courses to help teachers painlessly incorporate tech into their lessons.

Educators can connect Makey Makey to a banana, a pie tin...anything conductive, and the device will mimic a keyboard and mouse click, allowing users to control computer programs with those everyday items. Students will have lots of fun thinking of ways to build on and interact with the physical and digital worlds.

Getting Started

If you are new to Makey Makey, you'll want to head over to our makeymakey.com/howto page and start exploring your invention kit with our Beginner Online Course. This course is designed to help makers explore building circuits and sensors, and coding unique inventions with Scratch and MakeCode.

Pssst.... teachers, we've been working on a ton of free resources for you to help your students with exploring invention, including embeddable Google Slides for each beginner class! Snag resources here: https://bit.ly/MakeyAtHomeProjects.

Invention Literacy 

Our STEM pack is the perfect solution for teaching students about Invention Literacy.  Students can partner up to collaborate on inventions and learn how hardware and software work together!
