What is Makey Makey?

Makey Makey is a circuit board designed to connect everyday, conductive objects to computer keys using alligator clips. Using a USB cord, the Makey Makey board plugs into your computer to use your own computer keys or with the Makey Makey plug and play apps.

Using the Makey Makey requires minimal programming skills, just a basic understanding of conductivity and simple circuits.

How can Makey Makey be used in the classroom?

  • Conductive Objects – Use the Makey Makey to test if an object is conductive or not
  • Simple Circuits – Use the alligator clips to connect conductive objects together to create a simple circuit
  • Musical Instruments – Using the plug and play Piano app, make a musical instrument out of everyday objects
