Makey Makey™ Classic

Product Code:MM100

Makey Makey™ is perfect for the classroom. Students can invent projects that combine the tactile materials of the classroom with the coding projects they're creating on the computer to bring their creations to life.

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 it and learn to experiment with it as they start to learn coding.

Makey Makey™ believes that the Maker Movement is more than just robots, 3D printing, or STEM, or even building things. It allows students to become hardware engineers and solve real-world design challenges by providing a landscape that fosters curiosity and creates vibrant learners.Ever played games on Play-Doh or Piano on Bananas? Makey Makey™,  an invention kit for everyone, is a simple circuit board that lets you reprogram the world by connecting everyday objects to a computer. Rewire the World! Warning: extended use may result in creative confidence. 

What is Makey Makey™?

Turn the whole world into a keyboard. It's a simple Invention Kit for Beginners or Experts doing art, engineering, and everything in between.

Who is Makey Makey™ For?

Kids, Artists, Educators, Engineers, Inventors, Makers. Really it is for everyone.

How Does it Work?

Alligator Clip two objects to the Makey Makey™. For example, you and a banana (or an ice cube, or a kitty cat). When you touch the banana, the computer just thinks a keyboard key is being pressed, so you can type a letter, jump in a video game, take a picture, or play some music.

What materials work with Makey Makey™?

Ketchup, Pencil Graphite, Finger Paint, Fruits, Plants, Coins, Your Grandma, Silverware, Anything that is Wet, Pets, Aluminum, Rain, and hundreds more. Really any material that can conduct at least a tiny bit of electricity.

What can I create?

Make a banana piano, play games on a play dough game pad, take a selfie of your cat every time she drinks water. How? First, load up a computer program or any webpage. Let's say you load up a piano. Then, instead of using the computer keyboard buttons to play the piano, you can hook the Makey Makey to something fun, like bananas, and the bananas become your piano keys. Hundreds more of examples can be found at MakeyMakey.com
