Design Challenges and lessons for the whole school or the library

But first .... an intro..... What is Makey Makey?

The ultimate banana piano....

Okay.... but how can I use that at school? Check out this interactive display made by the new librarian at Lamar!

Or maybe make your school floor interactive?

Here is the how-to....

Let students get creative...

Why is this important? We need to teach our kids out stuff works. Check out this quote by Jay Silver on Invention Literacy

Are you are ready to get curriculum involved?

The Lessons and Design Challenges

First teach students how Makey Makey works.

Then show off different ways students can use it.

Then step back and let students create! Check out what my students made from this challenge.

My students were able to chat with the Makey Makey team for inspiration!
