Makey Makey Group Coming This November

We were fortunate enough to receive a grant from the Lighthouse Fund for the school library this year.  The grant purchased 8 Makey Makey kits and supplies for an after school program.  What is Makey Makey? Basically, it is a small programming board that connects to a computer and allows you to turn everyday objects into computer keys.  Think of what an online game might look like if you used Play-doh as your left/right arrow keys, or if you turned bananas into an online piano.  Check out a video from Makey Makey that shows some of the projects you can try.  Do you have any ideas?  Write them in the comments below!  Look for a permission slip to go home this Friday (October 23).  The group will meet from 3-4 p.m. in the school library on Mondays in November and December and is for students in grades 4-6.  Come join us!
