    Mocha and More - This Song Will Save Your Life

    Elise is a misfit and has endured a lifetime of social isolation and bullying. Walking alone one night after a half-hearted suicide attempt, she inadvertently ends up at an underground nightclub. There, Elise fits in and she begins living a double life, returning each week to learn how to spin music by the cute house DJ. Her secrets, however, are impossible to maintain and when a cyberbully starts harassing Elise, everything starts to unravel.

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.
