Because it comes preprogrammed, students with no coding experience can use and learn to experiment with it as they start to learn coding. Capitalize on the maker movement in your classroom. Teachers joining us will be able to check out Makey, Makey kits to use in their classrooms. Michelle Benigno of The Science House will be conducting this workshop. Limited to 25 participants.
