    Monday, February 16, 2015 - 2:00pm

    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 program, we will be using MaKey MaKeys to turn everyday conductive items into touchpads recognizable by our computers. All Northbrook Public Library cardholders who participate in the Computer Hackers class will be eligible to check out MaKey MaKey Kits from the library.
    This program is made possible by the generous donation from PotashCorp.
