Last month we announced that our ambassador window is open! Since then the applications have been pouring in and we wanted to share some of the awesome work from our Instructables Teacher Community! Also, if you are still interested in applying, don't worry! There are two weeks left before we review applications and choose our Makey Makey Ambassador Class of 2019-2020. (Read more here if you want to apply.)
In this instructable, students will draw their own emotion monster, code it in Scratch, and then a full book can be compiled of all the students' work!
If you are interested in Genius Hour, but haven't known how to schedule it, this is a great guide for getting started with the timing of this open concept!
We love that Naomi used the Doll-E guide to support social, emotional, learning! She even includes a list of books about influential women in STEM!
In this instructable you'll use the picture book Doll- E 1.0 to inspire students to design a toy for a friend. This is a great way to introduce design thinking to ele-makers! (Elementary makers)

Learn to design in Tinkercad and create your own game controller in this multi-faceted guide!
We just interviewed Matt a couple of weeks ago, you should read about his workshop at the Scratch Europe conference here. He told us about this Two Button Challenge idea during that, so we are stoked to see an instructables for other teachers posted! It is a great way to get kids to explore the possibilities in creating and coding a complex game for a fairly simple physical build!
All of these guides are a wonderful example of how our community is so great at sharing the possibilities! We can't wait to announce our newest ambassadors and there is still time if you want to apply!
