Makey Makey fruit piano.Creating Circuits with Makey Makey

Courtice Branch, The Great Room
Saturday, Oct. 21st

Who knew you could make a piano with bananas? Makey Makey works by opening and closing circuits, just like any other switch. But instead of the switch being on your computer, or your wall, the circuit is closed through the objects you connect with alligator clips, like some tinfoil, or your hand... or your lunch. See what you can do with this cool technology!
