EdLab Challenge: Musical T Shirts

Using a device called a ‘Makey Makey’ we have designed an activity which engages learners in a process of creative, technological, musical and electronic discovery. This involves designing and painting t-shirts using a mix of fabric paints and conductive paints, and then linking them up to a short circuit via the Makey Makey in order to make the T-shirts make sounds. Learners can use their creativity to design the t-shirts and to select the sounds, and we can provide support in adding the technology.

“Year 9 students from Whalley Range High really enjoyed this project, and made some beautiful and noisy creations.”
