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 to code. 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 before July 1, your registration fee includes a Makey Makey device. If you have questions about the workshop, contact Michelle Benigno (828-206-3014 / mtbenign@ncsu.edu). If you have questions about registration, contact LaDonna Sluder at WRESA (lsluder@wresa.org).
