Make STEM Education fun! 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.

Makey Makey works just like a USB keyboard or mouse, sending keyboard (WASD, spacebar, etc) and mouse (left click, right click, etc) signals to your computer. Makey Makey Classic works through opening and closing circuits, just like any other button. Instead of the circuit being closed underneath your keyboard, the circuit is closed through the conductive objects you connect with alligator clips like your hand or your lunch or some tinfoil. When the circuit is closed, the Makey Makey sends a command to your computer, just like when a button is pressed on a keyboard.

Connect the world around you to your computer! Setup takes just seconds. Make game controllers, musical instruments and countless inventions. Advance to additional inputs and multi-key remapping up to 18 keys.

  • Turn everyday objects like bananas into touchpads
  • Just plug, clip and play
  • No programming knowledge needed
  • No software to install
  • Works with Mac and Windows
  • 1,000’s of possibilities
  • Ages 8+

Works on Windows, Mac, Chromebook and on many flavors of Linux (Ubuntu, etc.). If the device supports a USB keyboard or mouse, it should work with Makey Makey.

Includes Makey Makey board, USB cable, 7 alligator clips, 6 connector wires, instructions with visual project start guide, online documentation and 20 color stickers.

Modular Robotics Cubelets Twelve Kit

Read More

Cubelets are magnetic blocks that can be snapped together to make an endless variety of robots with no programming and no wires. You can build robots that drive around on a tabletop, respond to light, sound and temperature with surprisingly lifelike behavior. Every unique arrangement is a new robot with novel behaviors emerging from the construction.

Each Cubelet has a tiny computer inside of it and is a robot in its own right. When you put Cubelets together, you’re actually making a robot out of several smaller robots. Each Cubelet communicates with its neighbors, so you know that if two blocks are next to each other, they’re talking.

The Cubelets Twelve the best way to introduce children of all ages to robotics, coding, and design thinking. The Twelve is the best mix of SENSE, THINK and ACT blocks for novice and experienced builders. Reprogram or control your robots when paired with the included Bluetooth® Cubelet. Use the included Brick Adapters to connect Cubelets with Lego®. Cubelets Twelve includes 12 robot blocks and two Brick Adapters.

Anyone who owns Cubelets robot blocks can leverage over 40 hours of free standards-aligned lesson plans! Created in concert with a variety of educators, Modular Robotics lesson plans are available to all Cubelets users under a Creative Commons Share Alike license. This means you can remix, share and use the curricula in any way you see fit. Use the lesson plans as inspiration or follow the plan for an entire unit of standards-aligned robot learning!

For ages 4+.

Includes battery, blocker, inverse, passive, Bluetooth, 2 distance, rotate, 2 drive, brightness, flashlight, 2 brick adapters and USB charging cable.

Chibitronics Chibi Lights Circuit Stickers are a creative and fun way to learn electronics. Circuit stickers are LED circuits on peel-and-stick stickers. Build circuits without soldering, plugging wires, or clips. Instead, use the stickers with conductive tapes to draw circuits on paper and other crafts. Learn to build circuits while make interactive artworks. It’s easy, fun, safe and creative.

Free downloadable tutorials and templates, videos, project ideas and the Circuit Sticker Sketchbook. The Sketchbook walks students though five circuit concepts including parallel circuits, switches and resistance-based sensors. Every activity comes with a circuit theory lesson, a template with drawing activity and then an open-ended activity for students to design and create their own circuits. Since the circuits are completed right on the pages of the book, students will have an interactive sketchbook of working circuits to refer to as they design their own projects. Best of all, they’ll be able to learn new electronics concepts while also expressing themselves in whole new ways.

Use these peel-and-stick circuits to add electronics to any sticker-friendly surface: paper, fabric, plastic, the sky’s the limit!

Stick-lets™ help children of all ages get back outside to create engaging and memorable experiences. By using Stick-lets, kids fall in love with the resourceful, renewable, and plentiful element: the stick! These durable, reusable, weather-resistant and safe silicone joints stretch the imagination through the simple act of lashing together various sizes of scavenged sticks. The flexible nature of the six shapes gives kids the freedom to build forts, toys, animal kingdoms, geometric shapes, and much more.

Stick-lets help cultivate an engaging learning environment in schools. Beginning at preschool age, children begin to understand structures and shapes through imaginative play. Students in primary and secondary school use the joints strategically to explore topics such as geometry, physics, engineering, and architecture. Therapists use Stick-lets for movement, speech and art therapy. Stick-lets promote problem-solving, team building skills, imaginative dexterity, design discovery and hands-on learning through physical manipulation (i.e. built with your own two hands!).

Great for 10-15 kids! ROHS Compliant.

Cubelets are magnetic blocks that can be snapped together to make an endless variety of robots with no programming and no wires. You can build robots that drive around on a tabletop, respond to light, sound and temperature with surprisingly lifelike behavior. Every unique arrangement is a new robot with novel behaviors emerging from the construction.

Each Cubelet has a tiny computer inside of it and is a robot in its own right. When you put Cubelets together, you’re actually making a robot out of several smaller robots. Each Cubelet communicates with its neighbors, so you know that if two blocks are next to each other, they’re talking.

The Cubelets Twelve the best way to introduce children of all ages to robotics, coding, and design thinking. The Twelve is the best mix of SENSE, THINK and ACT blocks for novice and experienced builders. Reprogram or control your robots when paired with the included Bluetooth® Cubelet. Use the included Brick Adapters to connect Cubelets with Lego®. Cubelets Twelve includes 12 robot blocks and two Brick Adapters.

Anyone who owns Cubelets robot blocks can leverage over 40 hours of free standards-aligned lesson plans! Created in concert with a variety of educators, Modular Robotics lesson plans are available to all Cubelets users under a Creative Commons Share Alike license. This means you can remix, share and use the curricula in any way you see fit. Use the lesson plans as inspiration or follow the plan for an entire unit of standards-aligned robot learning!
