Instructables Contest

February 26, 2020

Last summer we debuted our Teacher community on Instructables, so we are really stoked about this contest on Instructables featuring Makey Makey! There are some really awesome guides being shared with cool ideas we haven't thought of and we wanted to highlight a few for our readers.

Makey Makey Controller Shell (With or Without Nuts) by Nathan Sekinger

We are digging this guide by Nathan Sekinger because it really harkens to one of our core concepts of Invention literacy. In this Instructables, makers design and create a 3d printed video game controller, and then experiment with conductive items to use as their Makey Makey touchpads. Head on over to Instructables and check it out!
