Makey Makey

Our students have explored with the Makey Makey in the classroom, on several occasions….we did go through a few bananas as they figured out how to make it work J. They also used PlayDough, Model Magic, quarters, base ten blocks...and more!

Students are now taking turns taking the Makey Makey home.  I made a QR code and attached it to the top of our box.  The QR code when scanned shows lots of ideas of how to use the Makey Makey.  I love hearing about the students’ experiences, with this great device, and how their families get so involved with the exploration!

MaKey MaKey is an invention kit for the 21st century. Turn everyday objects into touchpads and combine them with the internet. It's a simple Invention Kit for Beginners and Experts doing art, engineering, and everything in between: 

Any material that can conduct at least a tiny bit of electricity will work. Here are some materials people have used in our workshops including Ketchup, Pencil Graphite, Finger Paint, Lemons, etc

Thanks to one of the members, from the MACUL Macomb ISD audience, for sharing this great resource with us...our students LOVE it!!!  Thank you!!

  1. In the month of March, the Nagaland Board conducts the HSLC examination. In the month of June, a Supplementary Examination is held. Every year, over lakhs of students take the HSLC examination administered by the NBSE board, including private and regular students. Only the Nagaland Board of School Education administers the Meghalaya Board HSLC Exam. Nagaland Board Model Paper Class 10 Nagaland Board HSLC Model Paper has been announced by the State Governmental Board of Education. Nagaland Board students who are going to sit in public examinations are allowed to download Nagaland Board HSLC Sample Paper from our website. Secondary Education Exams will begin in March, and this is the best time for students to prepare for their exams.
