Prototype Makey Makey, a simple invention kit for the classroom that helps students turn everyday items into keyboard buttons, to bring Scratch programming projects into the real world and engage your students.

  • Students can use Makey Makey with Scratch through an extension (found under the More Blocks section) to turn objects that conduct electricity into big, multi-purpose buttons.
  • You could have students make a jeopardy-style clicker system, a track-timer, or come up with an entirely new project.
  • Check out pictures from some of Dylan’s class projects like this track-timer, or the Epic-Invento-Mania Projects.
