Makey Makey Workshop
Ever wonder how to use Makey Makey in the classroom?
Teachers and educators, you're invited to join us at Discovery Place Education Studio to learn how to use the highly popular Makey Makey invention kit.
Tom Heck, VP for Education Initiatives at Makey Makey, will facilitate this workshop. He will share his approach to developing “Invention Literacy” alongside core content topics (e.g. Language Arts, Math, Social Studies).
Participants do not need to have any experience with Makey Makey. Those who have used Makey Makey in the past are encouraged to come and explore the technology through the guidance of a highly experienced facilitator.
Cost: $20 (includes lunch and a Makey Makey Classic kit)
Location: Discovery Place Education Studio
