In the Lab!

This time In the Lab we play music on a banana with makeymakey

cre·a·tiv·i·ty
noun
noun: creativity
the use of the imagination or original ideas, especially in the production of an artistic work.
synonyms: inventiveness, imagination, innovation, innovativeness, originality, individuality;
artistry, inspiration, vision;
enterprise, initiative, resourcefulness

Creativity is the act of turning new and imaginative ideas into reality. Creativity is characterised by the ability to perceive the world in new ways, to find hidden patterns, to make connections between seemingly unrelated phenomena, and to generate solutions. Creativity involves two processes: thinking, then producing.  Creativity allows us to play music on a banana!
