Make: Co kicked off the maker movement with innovative Maker Faires, international programs for kids like Maker Camp, loads of books and kits, and, of course, the beloved magazine. When COVID-19 closed schools around the world in 2020, Make coordinated online workshops and programs offered for free by selected maker hosts. Our own Sandy Roberts was one of them. After the success of her spring and summer programs, she was asked to return in the fall with multi-session classes.

Her first offering is Move and Groove with Makey Makey! The Makey Makey is an invention kit designed by MIT. It allows a user to connect everyday objects to the computer and Internet. That means that you can control that computer using bananas, PlayDoh, aluminum foil, even graphite from a pencil! Using Scratch — a free block-based visual programming language designed for kids — we’ll merge creativity and technology to make projects that will have you moving, dancing, gaming, and having fun.

Programs will take place on Thursdays, October 1st thru October 22nd, 2020
at 1:00 -2:30 PM PDT / 4:00 – 5:30 EDT. The class size is limited! Register for one, some, or for all. Register for all four classes and save. You will also get access to a private “classroom” to share projects, ask questions, and receive feedback. Register now!
