If you haven’t tried a Makey-Makey yet, you might be missing out on so many opportunities for fun and learning! We created a unique piece of art using this module, combining the arts and sciences in a unique way. The result was a collaborative piece of art, many questions from participants, with everyone saying “we need this at home!”.
