We’re joining the Mozilla Maker Party at YOUmedia and learning how to hack a notebook during our regular Maker Corner workshop.

  • August 6
  • 1:00 p.m.

What’s hacking a notebook? It’s all about using copper tape to create a circuit that will allow you to light up your notebook with LED lights. We’ll also be videotaping a tutorial as we make it.

Join us, and learn to move beyond simply consuming the web to understanding and creating it, so it remains open, accessible and ours.

You can even get a head start or learn how to do it on your own with resources found here.
