The original Makey Makey Classic – Named one of Consumer Reports’ “Best Tech Toys of 2014,” “Best of Toy Fair 2014” by Popular Science, and a finalist for Toy of the Year 2016.
What it is and why it was created?
The creators, Jay Silver and Eric Rosenbaum invented Makey Makey because they want you to understand how the world works, so you can look at the world and see it as something you can change. Essentially, the world is a construction kit! Everything around you can be used for inventing! To help you invent using everyday items, they created Makey Makey. It is a circuit board that you plug into your computer and it acts as a keyboard. Each metal pad that you see on the device is a conductive touchpad. That means the touchpads can be connected to other things to invent whatever you can dream up!
The company started out as a project that was initiated by two students at MIT Media Lab under the advisorship of Mitch Resnick and is an academic and artistic project. Now it’s both a business and a project with thousands of community collaborators, with more joining the ranks of inventors every day.
The Makey Makey STEM Pack contains:
- 12 Classics kits
- 12 (6ft) Alligator Clips
- 12 (6ft) Connector Wires
- 144 extra Alligator Clips
- 144 New and Improved Connector Wires (for the back)
- 12 Optimized Conductive 6B Pencils
Perfect for classrooms, schools, districts, workshop teachers, and anyone else that wants all their kits in a really nicely organized briefcase. The STEM Kit is a distillation of 12 classics kits, 12 booster packs, and some extra parts for when you want to invent something even bigger.
