Makey Makey + Scratch Video Game Projects

makey_line_drawingThis video shows 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students' homemade video game controllers. Students learned about the basics of electronics and then designed a schematic that incorporated closed and open circuits. Next, they worked on Scratch games to keep track of points. Finally, they built switches that would complete circuits when connected to the Makey Makey.
