Magical Project Ideas!

April 22, 2019

Check out this local story about a kid who decided to craft and code her own magic with Scratch and Makey Makey! And all because she loves reading!


"She was inspired to do more to bring Hogwarts to life. She created a coding project that uses a wand to start a voice-activated description of the Hogwarts houses. Using an electronic invention tool, called a 'Makey Makey,' she is able to connect objects, in this case a wand, to a computer program." 

Student Codes Tech Project Inspired by Harry Potter 


We love this great idea AND that the teacher gave her time to bring her invention to life!

If you need some help bringing your wizarding desires to life, check out these projects from our community.
