Launching Engineering and Innovation with Makey Makey and Scratch

We are proud to be launching the first of our STEM and STEAM Programs for the 2018-19 School Year titled Engineering and Innovation with Makey Makey and Scratch! This 75 min to Full-Day teacher and staff professional development workshop combines easy to learn coding with MIT’s Scratch, with the enginnering, arts and innovation potential of JoyLabz Makey Makey. Combined, these two technologies let teachers and learners explore drag and drop coding, sound editing and programming, while creating their own circuits, switches, inventions and machines to connect a computer to the real world.

The program begins with an introduction to Scratch and coding, followed by demonstrations of Makey Makey-based innovations from students around the world. There are optional switch-making, basic and advanced circuits, electrical components and conductive materials pull-outs and extensions, wrapped up with a maker space and design thinking exercise using the new tools and technologies. It is an engaging program model and a great day for learners from novice to expert.
