ATTENTION TEACHERS: Shipping to students (within the US) is FREE now through September! (details here)

School-Issued Makey Makey Kits Shipped Directly to Students

August 28, 2020

Free Classes and Activities

We know this school year looks different and we are trying a few initiatives to support educators with remote learning. We created beginner and intermediate Makey Makey classes for students at home and are diligently working on teacher facilitator's guide.

(Pssstt....Here is a sneak peek of embeddable Google Slides for teachers we are working on for you!)

Webinars for Professional Development

We've launched a new webinar series for teaching STEM from a Distance.

No need to stop by school to pick up kits!

We ship to student homes at no additional charge!

We have free activities/classes for kids at home!

Instructions for parents:

  • Your teacher or school administrator will send you a unique discount count for each Makey Makey to be delivered to your household. 
  • Go to the JoyLabz Official Makey Makey Shop to request your delivery.
  • Add Makey Makey Classic to your cart and click the button or shopping cart icon to Checkout.
  • Leave the Qty setting at 1 (or Update Quantities until there is only 1 Makey Makey Classic in your cart) and Proceed to Checkout.
  • Enter your email contact and the address where you would like your school-issued Makey Makey shipped.
  • On the right hand side of the page where the price is listed, enter the unique discount code that was sent to you, and click “Apply.”
  • Select “Free USA Shipping” as your shipping method.
  • Your total should equal: $0.00.
  • Click “Continue to payment.”
  • Don’t worry about the Billing Address, as a parent you are not being billed. (Leave it as “same as shipping address.”)
  • If all looks right, click Complete order.
  • If you add other items from the Makey Shop to your shopping cart along with the school-issued Makey Makey Classic kit, shipping will no longer be free. (You are welcome to order other items or more Makey Makeys, but only one Makey Makey Classic will be sent free of charge from your school.)
  • If you have more than one unique discount code, follow the instructions a second time and request each school-issued Makey Makey Classic with a separate transaction.
