New Maker Mashup Resources

June 09, 2020

We've got a new chapter on our "How To Resources" for maker mash ups. We've been working on combining resources to maximize fun in (and outside of) the classroom!

Here are the latest guides in our Maker Mashups Section:

Chain Reactions with Strawbees and Makey Makey

Gamify your chain reaction by using a Strawbees grabber connected to Makey Makey. This grabber will start a timer in Scratch when you grab a conductive egg. Drop the egg on the Strawbees roller coaster track. When the egg rolls into the egg drop, it stops the timer. 

Gamify Chain Reactions


Grab your Inventor Booster Kit or conductive tape, rifle through your winter clothes to find a mismatched glove and give it a new purpose!  Let's create a gesture-controlled wearable with an old glove, Makey Makey, micro:bit and Scratch!


Turn that lost and found glove into a game controller!


This guide has two Scratch coding literacy mashup ideas for creating with Makey Makey and micro:bit. One is a randomizer for creating story starters and the other is a monster mashup writing project.
