Using Makey Makey to Target Invention Literacy (Aug 2018)

Date:  August 13, 2018 (9 a.m.-3 p.m.)

Location: Mountain Horticultural Crops Research & Ext. Center, 455 Research Drive, Mills River, NC 28759

Cost: $85 (registration by 7/30/18 includes a Makey Makey Kit)

Join us for a day of exploration and invention using a device called a Makey Makey. With the Makey Makey, students can make any conductive material act as the input device for a computer. Because it comes preprogrammed, students with no coding experience can use and learn to experiment with it as they start to learn coding. Capitalize on the maker movement in your classroom. Teachers joining us will be able to check out Makey Makey kits to use in their classrooms. If you register by July 30th, your registration fee includes a Makey Makey device.
