Hardware Engineering: Makey Makey

Run by Engineering For Kids






Tagged in: Kids, Science & Tech, After School, Arts & Crafts

Imagine designing a piano using celery or creating a custom digital training program. Now, envision playing video games using just your body, a bit of wire and your own imagination. 

In our hardware engineering program, students engineer their own customized video game controllers using a Makey Makey device and materials that can be found in just about any kitchen. Through application of circuitry, acoustical engineering and video game design, students discover new ways to interact with technology, all while creating unique designs in a fun, collaborative environment.
