What are you favorite conductors to use with MakeyMakey and your students? Any unexpected ones? I’ll get the list started with aluminum foil.
(I ❤️ foil).
This lead to some interesting teaching ideas AND surprising conductors! We thought we'd share the list with you for #funfactfriday and invite you to share your favorite conductors in the comments. (We now have commenting available thanks to Disqus!)
Tom Heck, our VP of Education Initiatives, mentioned that this is one of his favorite projects with students. He tells students, "Let's create a list of our favorite conductors! Start bringing stuff in this week and we'll test it." He says it is always fun to see what the students bring in to test.
