MaKey MaKey from JoyLabz definitely qualifies as STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math). This “invention kit for the 21st century” is simply a circuit board with alligator clips. Essentially, it tricks a computer into thinking that almost anything is a keyboard to turn everyday objects into touchpads. Want to play the piano using bananas instead of keys? Okay. How about creating a workable game controller out of Play-Doh? Entirely possible. makeymakey.com
