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 to enhance any curriculum. Teachers joining us will be able to check out a classroom set of Makey Makey kits to use in their classrooms! Participants will receive their own Makey Makey kit! This program qualifies for new Digital Learning competencies!
