There were two Makey Makey stations: one organic and one metallic. Students learned how to assemble the Makey Makey and connect to materials they could 'play' on the computer. They had fun drawing controllers on paper to play a video game, using keys, a golden apple and scissors to DJ some beats and used modeling clay, bananas and a plant to play a piano.
Paper circuitry was fun! Ms. Lewis showed students how to glue conductive strips onto paper, then make a light go on when the circuit was completed.
Snap Circuits were fun and easy to assemble... if you followed the directions! Students tried various methods to get a light to turn on.
The Arduino is an interactive circuit board that has many different means to make circuitry learning fun. Thanks for demonstrating how cool it is, Mr. Lewis!
We had so much fun that we're trying this again! If you are an interested student, sign up on the Media door for the March 26th workshop. Look for upcoming details on the WMS Media homepage. Cheers to creative learning!
