Makey Makey Circuits

My students need Makey Makey circuits to code and program in the real world.

My Students

The school's media center is a space where discovery, exploration, and creativity interweave while engaging with technology. Students' are provided opportunities through projects to learn about how to use different types of technology.

Our school's students are very eager to use robotics and coding to move from just consuming media to being creators.

My students are predominately first-generation Mexican-American children of immigrants in grades K-5. Our school has a strong performing arts program and technology program.

Our goal is to provide students with up-to-date technology to develop skills that students can use not just in technology fields, but also in other areas while tapping into multiple interests.

My Project

Our school has significantly invested in technology throughout the years, investing in various devices and ensuring most grade levels are 1:1. Students engage to a significant degree with technology, but we want to provide further access to circuits with Makey Makey kits to ensure our students continue to have access to world-class technology skills to prepare them for success in the 21st century.

The Makey Makey circuits will provide a tool to visualize concretely the programs they have created online in the real world.

Students will be able to go beyond creating abstract code for imaginary objects and worlds. They will explore topics like coding while also looking at issues dealing with circuits.

Our school's budget has been cut dramatically for the past few years, but we still have the responsibility of making sure our students are obtaining the skills and experiences they will need to be successful. These Makey Makey circuits will help to close that gap just a little bit more.
