Makey Makeys on Loan

We are now offically loaning MaKey MaKey Invention Kits!

These invention kits offer endless amounts of fun and inspiration for makers of all ages. Make things like banana pianos, touch sensitive plants or turn some regular old cardboard and tinfoil into a custom game controller. 

Plug the MaKey MaKey into your computer and go to https://scratch.mit.edu/ to access pre-made programs. From here, using the alligator clips, you can plug any conductive material into the holes on the MaKey MaKey to take control of your computers keyboard. Once you get comfortable, why not try making your own Scratch game?
