T4L #ScienceWeek Incursion - The whales journey - Create with Makey Makey

Students and teachers are invited to Zoom into this session and use their Makey Makey to create a spectacular interactive poster. National Science Week 2020's theme Deep Blue: Innovations for the future of our oceans needs your help plotting the migration and journey of whales

This class activity will be lead by stem.T4L leaders. You and your students are invited to attend - just register, receive the link and zoom your way in. The only requirements are:

  • A screen/projector where you and your students can see/watch the stem.T4L leader.
  • Speakers to ensure the students can hear the instructions.
  • Internet to ensure a continuous connection.
  • Makey-Makeys and connected PCs.

Using Makey Makey, students will create a poster demonstrating the migration patterns of whales along the East Coast of Australia. Students will use Tynker to build a program which connects their poster to the computer via Makey Makey, creating an interactive poster that offers a variety of ways for students to demonstrate their learning. This activity will allow students to build and consolidate computational thinking skills and communication skills
