This week our Prototyping and Inventing students were busy using Makey Makey kits to control their programming creations. Many of the project were coded in Scratch, but some students were able to build on a previous Innovation Lab experience and use Game Maker Studio.
The projects are a perfect combination of coding and physical building and wiring. The Makey Makey allows students control their creation by physically touching objects they have chosen, built, or modified. Think of it like creating your own video game controller! Inventing with Makey Makey was our last activity before we launch our open ended inventing challenge this week!
