Aaron Graves and I drove down to Austin today to present two of our favorite maker ideas mashed together  (Scratch and Makey Makey )at our state conference TCEA!

We had so much fun sharing our real live inventions from our #evilmakeybook and sharing lots of cool ideas from others about how to combine this microcontroller and visual programming language!

If you missed the session today that Aaron and I led, you are in luck! You can peep our slide deck below. We hope this intro to physical computing not only gets you and your students beyond the banana with Makey Makey, but that you get excited about combining more things in our analog world with the digital world!

If you make stuff from our Makey Makey book with students, please share your students’ work with the #evilmakeybook hashtag! One such tweet, inspired me to work on one of the book projects with my entire 5th grade at school. My next post will detail the super cool lesson by Anne Smith sparked from one of our book projects.

Get your own Makey Makey book on Amazon. It in full color and not even 15 bucks. 🙂

  1. Love the presentation. Thanks for sharing!!! The combination of Scratch and MakeyMakeys is like paint and paintbrushes–there is NO limit. There is also no more thrilling experience as a teacher too. Thanks again!!!
