By mimicking a keyboard and mouse the Makey Makey lets you control any computer program with everyday objects. Discovery Kits empower kids to see themselves as scientists, engineers, creators, and makers. Inspired by both STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) and the Maker Movement, each Discovery Kit includes a hands-on experience to encourage curiosity, learning, and experimentation.
