Kalo Haslem's Interactive Christmas Tree



We love this interactive Christmas tree created by Makey Makey ambassador Kalo Haslem!

For the Interactive Christmas tree, the kindergarten students made ornaments. Then they were able to come into the hall and trigger them and dance. The classes talked about how circuits work.

Claire Garside's Sensory Tree

Claire Garside, a researcher at Leeds University made her actual tree interactive with Makey Makey and Soundplant. With the new IOS update, you can actually use your iPhone or iPad coupled with our Sampler app to recreate a similar effect! 



Here is another great interactive tree!

Makey Makey Holiday Cards

Here is a really amazing holiday card tutorial from Yui at Conductive Music for making interactive greeting cards. Yui makes the most amazing cartoon tutorials! We just love them. This is a great group in London that helps promote technology and music.


 A holiday card can also take the shape of a Christmas tree, like this great example from Bethany Jones on Twitter.


 More inspirational holiday cards by McPherson's classes!




Record Student Greetings



Last holiday season, Mrs. Fedewicz's class recorded messages to make their holiday door interactive.
