We are so excited to once again partner with the Infosys Foundation USA to provide professional development to teachers this summer!
This Makey Makey intensive will blend our dynamic in-person workshop with our new online resources for teachers. Participants will learn the basics of circuits and Makey Makey with hands-on exploration, then begin to craft and code their own inventions. We will further delve into the world of invention literacy by building Scrappy Circuits! This virtual workshop will build off the basics of electronics and cardboard building, and help teachers learn how to create expressive interactive art, create cardboard instruments, craft alarms with office supplies, and even learn to make pixel art fingerpaint with Scratch Programming! Makey Makey blends the best of the maker world by sharing hands-on building techniques for the ultimate physical computing inventions.
All supplies for this course (Makey Makey and supplemental supplies) will be provided by us and shipped to you so you can learn virtually in real time with these experienced virtual educators. You will want to have some recyclables handy so you can realize the full potential of the world as your construction kit!
