MakeyMakey at Beavers


Recent had a great time playing with a MakeyMakey board (see an example below taken from an Amazon site) with some Beaver Scouts. 

The basis of the activity was a very simple scratch program; where the 'space' key (banana number one) played one recording and 'left key' (better know as banana number two) played another recording. 



Started with a few drum sounds, but when the session really took off was when they started recording their own sounds. Lots of shouts, shrieks and names but it engaged them…and left me with two very smashed up bananas.
