With MakeyMakey, kids can turn everyday objects into touch-pads and combine them with the Internet. Any material that can conduct electricity will work. The kids will identify which objects are conductive with the MakeyMakey i.e. pencil graphite, banana, lemons, plants, coins, your friends, most foods, aluminum foil, etc. Kids can learn valuable lessons while playing fun games like Banana Piano, Whack-a-Mole, or Super Mario.
How do we teach kids about something that is nearly invisible? UV bead is a cool way to demonstrate UV light. They appear white while indoors, but take them outside and see the ultraviolet sensitive pigments inside the beads change to blue, green, orange, red, and yellow. They are also the perfect tools for kids to test the effectiveness of sunscreen lotions i.e. SPF 30 vs SPF 50.
