School programs and resources

Students will improve their understanding of computer systems, electric circuits and conductivity through active play and experimentation. Using a Makey Makey micro-controller, students work in teams to identify conductive materials which can be fashioned into an innovative controller for a Scratch program.

Students are introduced to circuits and switches and given exploration time to discover conductive materials and circuit science for themselves.
