Make Some Noise!

What does a day in the life of you sound like? In this workshop find out how to trigger sounds with only a banana, some tin foil or by high-fiving someone. Using your daily routine as inspiration, you will help to create a group sound installation using Makey Makey; an electronic invention tool and toy that allows users to connect everyday objects to computer programmes.
