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. This is exactly what we are going to do using tiny computers called Arduino (ar-dwee-no) microcontrollers. We will program them to do a number of cool things using LED lights, circuits, sensors and maybe even lasers. This program is made possible by the generous donation from PotashCorp.
Join us for an afternoon at the movies! Well be watching Divergent in the Activity Room in the Youth Services Department. Popcorn's on us! Heads up: This movie is rated PG-13
