6. Challenge #2

Challenge: Use the Engineering Design Process outlined below to imagine, prototype, and share a MakeyMakey controller for an individual who has suffered a spinal cord injury resulting in tetraplegia. The individual does have movement of her head, neck, and shoulders. 

Engineering Design Process:

Step 1: Imagine

  • Reflect on the above challenge and make a clear sketch of your idea on a piece of paper. You might find this video and this video helpful in imagining your solution. 

Step 2: Prototype 

  • Using your drawing as a reference, build your MakeyMakey controller for your individual with tetraplegia. Your device should be able to fit onto the back of a chair. Revise as needed. 

Step 3: Share 

  • Upload a video of your MakeyMakey controller for an individual with tetraplegia successfully operating. Type your first name in the “Subject” area.
