  • Hackers - MaKey MaKey (grades 4-8)
    Thursday, August 13, 2015 - 3:30pm
    Youth Services Activity Room

    Hackers: MaKey MaKey (grades 4-8) Register

    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 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.
    Friday, August 13, 3:30-4:30 p.m.
