Scratch+micro:bit Instrument!

In preparation for the PLIX instrument workshop on Thursday, I started tinkering with Scratch and micro:bit and made a maraca! I used 2 plastic spoons taped around a plastic Easter egg and decorated it with washy tape. The micro:bit is attached to the top part of the maraca with some tape.

On Scratch, I used the ‘when shaken’ function so it played the preset Shaker sound when you moved it. Here is the code:

Michelle also made a great instrument for more inspiration here. Can’t wait to see what we all make on Thursday!
