Instructions (Part III): Carefully study the below video to learn how to begin using your MakeyMakey. 

Instructions (Part IV): Using the above video as a guide, and the materials in your kit, build a MakeyMakey controller for the Scratch game you created last week. Test your controller by playing your game with it a number of times and noting any revisions that need to be made.
