Makey Makey Term 3 Extension Reflection

Term 3 Extension Task! It gets harder and harder every Term. This was one of the hardest so far. Our Task was to use Makey Makey and code to make an instrument to play either the song Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Happy birthday or a song that you know how to play. If you don’t know what Makey Makey is the information is on here. My group, Me and Ajani chose to play Happy Birthday. Ajani was playing the Piano and I was playing the Drums. First Ajani had to create a piano by using a cardboard box and had to cut little cardboard pieces to represent the tiles. And I used playdough container and put the playdough pieces on top and used pencils to represent the drum sticks.

The biggest challenge that we had was to try and put the drumming and mix it with the piano luckily we had Zoe there.  Ajani and I had a choice between a game show and musical  instruments so Ajani and I picked to do instruments. The thing we found most easier was getting to know the beats and keys to play our instruments, we started with the twinkle twinkle little star song but that didn’t work out so we tried Happy Birthday and it actually worked out. If you think you can take the challenge go try out the Makey Makey and see if you can make a band, here is the site go have a look and buy the kit.
