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! This Professional Development session will be held at The Science House, NCSU in Raleigh, NC from 9 am - 3 pm. Registration fee is $85. Participants who register before 1/25/19 will receive their own Makey Makey. Limited to 25 participants. This program qualifies for new Digital Learning competencies!
