Weekly Remix: MaKey MaKey

This semester, I am working with a professor to develop a toolkit to creatively engage kids ages 3 to 7 in coding. One of the tools already on the market is called a MaKey MaKey: a microcontroller which acts as a physical extension of the computer. While presenting this video, the professor said “Scratch (a simple computing platform for kids age 5+) provides templates for people to Remix with the MaKey MaKey.” I thought it was interesting that a tool on the market for kids encourages remixing existing content as well as mediums to create music. The video below demonstrates some of the few (creative) ways people have used the MaKey MaKey and Scratch to remix music.
