Let Cheryl Burgemeister show you loads of easy and exciting ways to do it.



Use this 10 week unit of work to teach your students to code their own virtual music instruments in Scratch and turn them into an electronic instrument with the Makey Makey INVENTION kit!
Scratch is an online/offline, computer based, coding program used to teach the basics of coding. More at www.scratch.mit.edu

Here's an easy way to introduce it with step by step tutorials, videos, audio and image files, notes, charts, proformas and outcomes checklists.
