With Makey Makeys, learning never stops for our 3rd graders. We are so excited that each NCS 3rd grader has received a Makey Makey kit for STEM learning at home! Makey Makeys allow for connections between "real world objects" and on-screen programs, such as Scratch, which unleashes a huge amount of potential for kid-created inventions! 


So far, the students have learned how to connect the Makey Makeys to their iPads, control a piano keyboard, and create music using everyday objects such as fruit and silverware! Their latest tests have been to figure out what household items are conductive and non-conductive.

Here are videos of the students showing and describing their experiences so far:

These are comments from our students regarding using Makey Makeys:

*We are using Makey Makeys  to explore the amazing huge digital world.

*The inventions never stop, the learning never stops, and the fun never stops!

*We are making music. I think it’s fun!

*We are doing a conducted scratch project.

*I feel great about it but the coding is a little tricky.

*I did an apple 🍎 piano 🍏

*We are learning how to use them.


*I feel great about working with Makey Makey.

*With Makey Makey, we are testing out conductive and non-conductive materials and/or making projects like fruit piano.

*and a baby 🥕 piano too. 

*We are learning about some technology with the Makey Makeys and learning what things are conductive and not conductive.         *I enjoy working with them because they are fun to use and make noises with and they’re fun when you plan how to use it.

*I feel really good about Makey Makey so far and I feel like it is a great learning opportunity for kids, but it is also very, very, fun!

*We are using Makey Makey to make pianos and test stuff like conductivity and what happens when stuff happens.

*So far I love Makey Makey.

*We are testing conductive things and not conductive things and also creating fun projects.
