Investigating Electricity With Makey-Makeys

In Science, we have been investigating circuits and electricity. Using “Makey-Makeys”, little invention kits that allow us to turn everyday objects into touch pads that can interact with computers, we tested different materials for their conductivity. We also experimented with creating circuits that will allow electrons to flow through them.

Zac’s question: is human hair a conductor or an insulator?

Jorja and Ava were the first pair to successfully create a circuit incorporating play dough as a conductor.
