Tactile Coding with Makey Makey

BY Teresa DeFilippo

Minot Forest School

Project Description
Students will demonstrate skills utilized by hardware engineers and solve real-world design challenges in an environment that fosters curiosity and creates vibrant learners.

How will the project be evaluated (e.g. how will you gauge its success)
Students will design video games and other coded projects of interest and incorporate the Makey Makey circuitry to manipulate the designs.

Benefit to the students and the school
At Minot we are working on giving students voice. Through this project, students will decide what they will design and build and create the best way to show what they know and how their product works.

Timeline of Project (when will you do the project, if applicable)
Students will participate during the last trimester of the 2017-2018 school year with a larger roll out during the 2018-2019 school year as part of Technology class.
