Makey Makey has partnered with Workbench to launch Makey Makey Labz, an online community for students, educators and fans. The online community, powered by Workbench, is a place for users to share their Makey Makey inventions and find inspiration from other inventors around the world. Educators can access Makey Makey Labz to browse through a library of interactive, hands-on project guides, assign guides to students, and track student progress.

The Makey Makey invention kit turns any conductive material into the input device for a computer. For example, it can turn bananas into piano keys or turn bits of Play-Doh into a video game controller. The kit was named one of Consumer Reports’ “Best Tech Toys of 2014" and "Best of Toy Fair 2014" by Popular Science.
Workbench provides an online platform that lets users access hands-on, project-based learning.
