“Jen: I was inspired by all of the early ideas shared in the Makey group. I am looking forward to going #beyondthebanana with a new group of teachers. I plan to try out more ideas (once I have a copy!) and share in workshops along with facilitating some collaborative projects across various grade levels (K-8). I want to use more features of the Makey (e.g., back ports) and try to think outside the banana, so to speak 😉”
“Elma Strong: We are new to Makey and I will be starting a Girls STEAM club in our 6-8 middle school. I would like to include literature with the Makey in order to bring “new life” to reading.”
“shannonlibrarian (Shannon Walters): Love the hashtag #beyondthebanana! Makey Makeys have so much potential, but so often stay at the toy level. Low entry points/high ceiling. Can’t wait to get my hands on your book to see what ideas you’ve come up with!”
For those of you who didn’t win, the book is super affordable on Amazon and I’ll also be sending signed copies to Makey Makey if you want your copy signed by me and Aaron Graves. (And did we mention the book is in FULL COLOR?!?!?!)
Lastly, Aaron and I made some videos to accompany projects. The first two skill level videos are now out! Watch them below and start thinking about how you can hack these projects to go #beyondthebanana.
