Have you ever been playing a video game and wished that you were using something other than the standard plastic controller? Like a banana... or a glass of water... or some Play-Doh? Perhaps you've even wanted to design your own controller.

Come to the library to try your hand at creating your own video controller using a MaKey MaKey invention kit and whatever kind of materials you can think of to use. 

We will hold three demonstrations in earlier October, and we will host a contest on Oct. 25. The winner will go home with a MaKey MaKey of their own. And for our demonstrations, we will use a very special literary Nintendo game, but you can choose your own game (or musical instrument, or whatever...)

Need inspiration? Watch the video below:
