Pressure Piano


Last Updated: 7/26/18

The Pressure Piano is a three-key piano consisting of the notes G, A, and B that play off of a buzzer when activated.  Each key is made of Velostat, aluminum foil, and two jumper wires.  While making this project, you will create the three keys yourself, hook up a breadboard, and write the code as provided in the instructions PowerPoint.  This project was designed with the ability to make your own (for older kids), in mind, or to function just fine as is (for younger kids), so feel free to add keys and notes, or use this as a springboard for any ideas you may have in mind.

The presentation material can be downloaded at Pressure Piano.
