RICM Presents: Makey-Makey Inventors Workshop
Saturday June 24, 2017
12:30 PM until 2:30 PM
Ages 8 and up.
The "Makey Makey" (makeymakey.com), invented by graduate students at MIT, is a small circuit board that connects to a computer and lets you invent your own keyboard with anything that conducts electricity. Use bananas to play a virtual piano or band instruments! Use a pencil and PlayDoh to make a controller for a computer game! Various conductive materials will be provided to get everyone started, but kids are encouraged to bring their own. Things that would conduct electricity well: fruit, green leaves, flowers, soda cans, metal bottle caps. Parents are encouraged to attend the workshop with their children. They'll have lots of fun too!
This program funded by a donation from The Osterman Family Foundation.
