    Youth Services Activity Room

    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. Already familiar with Arduino? Try out our LittleBits Arduino Coding kit. 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.
