MI.MU launches musical glove aimed at children’s education

MI.MU musical glove

The MINI.MU can be made by kids aged 8+ with no prior experience and aims to inspire young people to apply their creative minds to technology. Each kit contains everything needed to build a glove from scratch, encouraging children to learn to sew, engage in electronics and code. The MINI.MU is built using the educational microcomputer the Micro:bit designed by the BBC in the UK. Once constructed, each MINI.MU glove can be used by children to make music using the movement of their hands, using the sensors in the glove.

MI.MU Managing Director Adam Stark said: “We can’t wait to see what kids will do with the MINI·MU gloves. We want to support young people in exploring music, technology, creativity and making and hope the MINI·MU will do just that”.

Top Tips for a successful MakerSpace

In STEAM subjects, investigation and experimentation are an important part of learning, building confidence and inquisitiveness. Practical experience is already proven to have greater learning outcomes and better retention amongst students than structured teaching and lecture models, bringing the theoretical to life.

Teaching and learning through STEAM activities can take many formats, but all serve as a gathering point for tools, projects, mentors, and expertise. Activities can be personalised to any project that involves group collaboration - from coding and robotics to woodworking and art projects to science and engineering experiments.
