After we received 5 Makey Makey kits at fizzPOP: The Birmingham Makerspace, I must admit I was stuck for ideas on how to use them. So I decided to take them into work and try them out with some of the autistic youngsters that I work with. It turned out to be a perfect fit for children on the autism spectrum, the opportunity to explore colour, shape, and sensory experiences can stimulate attention, foster calm, and stimulate learning and be a lot of fun.
Makey Makey sent "fizzPOP: The Birmingham Makerspace" 5 of these full kits. You can see from the photo that they come with lots of leads and bits in a nice tin can for storage.
Thanks, Makey Makey!
Thanks also to Adam, for taking the time to introduce these fun kits to "his kids", and going through the paperwork to let us write it up!
