Description

Become a certified Makey Makey Educator!

The Makey Makey Invention Literacy Workshop for Educators is a fun hands-on learning experience where you'll learn how to teach Invention Literacy, Making, and Design Thinking using the award winning Makey Makey invention kit. We'll explore how to teach circuits and conductivity using Makey Makeys and then put our skills to use designing your own inventions! Participants learn best practices and gain access to a multimedia training website that can be used later when working with your students or training others.

This workshop will explore the world of inventing, design thinking and making using the Makey Makey in a fun, hands-on way. All participants who complete this 5 hour workshop will walk away with a free Makey Makey ($70 value) and certificate of completion!

To make the most of this workshop, please bring a computer you are already comfortable with using. Windows, Chromebook, and Mac devices work well.
