Grade Level(s): K-16

Date(s): January 9, 2020

Location: NC Center for Engineering Technologies (NCCET) 1990 Main Ave SE, Hickory, NC 28602

Cost: $85/person (with take-home Makey Makey kit)

Description: Join us for a day of exploration and invention using a device called a Makey Makey! With the Makey Makey, students can make any conductive material act as a computer keyboard. Because it comes preprogrammed, students with no coding experience can use it and experiment with it as they start to learn coding.

Capitalize on the maker movement in your classroom! Learn to use the Makey Makey to enhance any curriculum! Teachers joining us will be able to check out Makey Makey kits to use in their classrooms. Gina Barrier of The Science House will be conducting this workshop in Hickory, NC from 9 am - 3 pm. Registration fee is $85. Participants who register before 1/1/20 will receive their own Makey Makey. Limited to 25 participants. This program qualifies for Digital Learning competencies!
