Bring Your Laptop & Charging cable: Windows, Mac, Chromebook, Linux operating systems work great. Tablets will not work. Regardless of the kind of laptop used, it must have the ability to plugin a USB “type A” plug - - these are the most common type of USB plugs and it’s how the Makey Makey is connected to a computer. Some new laptops don’t accept a USB type A plug so the user must supply their own adaptor (“dongle”).

  • NOTE: If you're using a school issued laptop make sure you're able to access the internet outside of school. Make sure you can access all websites (like youtube). Sometimes school issued laptops are "locked down" or have some kind of restriction placed on them.

Lunch: will be provided
