Become a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Champion with UOIT technology workshops!

Consider yourself a gamer? Take your skills to the next level! Enhance your online gaming experience with a custom controller using Makey Makey. 
The technology acts like switches, but opening and closing circuits with Makey Makey doesn’t just use anything – it uses everything! With the help of alligator clips, anything can be part of your circuits – bananas, tin foil... Even yourself!

Please note: program participants will not be able to keep the equipment.

Presented in partnership with the University of Ontario Institute of Technology Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science.
