    It's not what you think! A hacker is someone who enjoys building, rebuilding, and modifying software; someone who enjoys testing limits and seeing what is possible. In this Hackers we will be tinkering with Arduino microcontrollers and try programming them to do a number of cool things using LED lights, circuits, and sensors. All participants of the Hackers class will be eligible to check out Arduino Kits from the library. This program is made possible by the generous donation from PotashCorp.

    Participants should only register for one of the Arduino classes.
