Maker Camp: Makey Makey Banana Piano

2:00 pm - 3:00 pm, 08/05/2013

How do you make a banana into a piano key? We’ll use a MaKey MaKey to complete a circuit by touching bananas! Connect yourself to ground, and a banana to key on the MaKey MaKey circuit board. Next we’ll set up Scratch (MIT’s free programming environment) to play a sound when you touch each banana, and voila, we have a banana piano! Let’s see what other musical instruments we can dream up…. can you make a drum kit out of cheese? How about a squishy sound effects machine made out of a few marshmallows!
