Chippewa Elementary School fifth-grade students explored the engineer profession and developed their problem-solving skills as they utilized Makey Makey kits to discover exciting electricity concepts.  

The Makey Makey kits supply students with a small circuit board and multiple connectors to use as they explored conductivity. In addition to the kits, students incorporated numerous other conductive materials to complete their circuits. Students used Play Doh to create electric bongo drums and bananas to assemble a piano. Led by Library Media Specialist Ciara Harte, students experimented with different combinations of connections to find the most effective circuit.
