I’m excited to share Makey Makeys with you today! Makey Makeys can be used to turn anything conductive into a button for your computer. You can use them with bananas, carrots, water, tinfoil, the list goes on! I’ve used them to teach people about basic circuits, and to get them thinking about how they might interact differently with their computer. While I was learning about MakeyMakeys, I found this Quick Start Guide to be really helpful for generating programming ideas.
Want to use the MakeyMakeys in your library? Contact the SPLAT representative from your area to borrow any of the items from the Idea Lab. They will be happy to coordinate delivery and can provide hands-on training to get you started!
