COUNTING TO 10

RATIONALE FOR THE PROJECT
This Makey Makey project aims to help kids aged 4 and up to count up to 10. We conducted a survey and had the kids tell us up to what number they can count. Majority of them still didn't know how to count to 10, so we decided to try helping them by creating this project.
The controller was made with a shoe box, aluminum foil, clay, colored pencils, colored paper, and of course, our Makey Makey kit.
Our design went through many revisions to fit our program; we removed and changed some to fit the space. Some buttons on the controller were designed to be used in a few games on the program. Since time did not allow those programs to exist, the buttons were removed from the design.
This project wasn't easy at all. The project was separated into 2 parts: the Scratch program and the controller. The programming took a lot of time since when you have a lot of blocks on Scratch it gets messy and confusing to understand. The controller, too, was difficult to create because you need to find ways to hide the Makey Makey wires and connect them to a conduct able object.
