  • Makey Makeys, Scratch Coding, and Play Doh! Oh my!

    January 20, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am

    Event run by Comcast NBCUniversal LIFT Labs

    Learn how to code your own game and create your own working game controller using everyday household items and food! In this workshop, students will use a Makey Makey Inventor’s kit to build a custom keyboard out of unconventional conductive materials, such as fruit and Play-Doh. Students will then pair their keyboard with the game created in Scratch programming in order to connect the digital and physical world. No prior experience necessary.

    Please create a free Scratch account.

    Located above Suburban Station (accessible via Amtrak and Septa). Parents, please have a valid government issued ID for security purposes. Devices and snacks will be provided.

    Please send an email to Jane McConnell if you have any questions. Thanks!
