My Students

I am a K0-6 grade technology teacher and I work with two classes per grade at each grade level. In technology class, we work on typing, word processing, internet safety, coding, computer science, and more! My students are entering in-person learning with improved computer skills and they are ready for the next step in our technology class.

My Project

Using a circuit board, alligator clips, and a USB cable, the Makey Makey toy uses closed loop electrical signals to send the computer either a keyboard stroke or mouse click signal. Students will be able to use these to control the Scratch projects that they create using visual code blocks. This is such a fun way for students to master their understanding of circuits as well as enhance their coding and computer science creations. After learning at home for a year, our students are craving hands-on projects like this one!
