Makey Makey® is a simple electronic device that connects to a computer and takes the place of a keyboard or game controller. Once plugged in, you can control the computer with all kinds of wires and circuitry – even your own skin!
In pairs of one adult and one child, participants will work together to tinker with Makey Makey®. Our friendly staff will assist with suggestions and challenges so participants can proceed at their own pace. Laptops are used to connect to the Makey Makey®.
Workshops commence 1pm and take 90 minutes. Numbers are limited for each session.
Suitable for ages 6-10 years.
Children must be accompanied by an adult. To get the most out of the workshop, we recommended the accompanying adult direct their full attention to the participating child. Adults are not charged for children's workshops – max one adult attending per child. Entry to the museum is required (entry is always free for Museum Members).
Please note we have limited capacity in the work space for people other than the participating child and adult.
