Children Experiment with Makey Makey at the Library

makey-makey

Friends of the Smithers Library - The kids in the photo were experimenting with the Makey Makey and discovered on their own that they could pass an electrical current through multiple people. they then used this knowledge to play a piano program on a computer with the Makey Makey by tapping Maddy while Tess and Ella held onto the Makey Makey's cords. We have enjoyed watching the excitement and creative thinking generated by these hands-on methods of learning.
