Teaching With the Makey-Makey

This Spring I taught a 5 day class to our middle school students called Makey Makey. The class focused around the ideas of invention, creativity and imagination. Students were given a Makey Makey (a simple pre-programed circuit board that lets users control a computer by using alligator clips and anything that is conductive). Students were taught the elements of basic design, and circuitry. The students had to use the Makey Makey to create a final project that was original. The presentation will give attendees some insight about using a project based model for learning and exploration. I will also show videos of student work and possibly bring in a student or two to answer questions.
