HACK JAM:MAKE,HACK*,AND RE-MIX THE WORLD!

This program will test and develop your technological literacy, including skills commonly referred to as “hacking” (in the legal sense) and  “remixing.” Using technologies including littleBits, Raspbery Pi (a credit-card sized computer),(a credit-card sized computer), 3D printing, and gaming (Minecraft), we will  work to integrate these tools to create something new. Once we’ve made some new things we will work to get them talking to other ‘things’  using networking technologies. During this program we will also document our projects and progress online, for the world to see. If you have an interest in how you can use technology to shape your world then this session is for you. We will open up the black box, dig inside and reconnect some of the shiny bits…and then see what happens. (Cornell Cooperative Extension Information Technology)

Where we’ll be working

June19

We will be returning to the Bissett Collaborative Center in Mann Library this year. We have been fortunate enough to be able to use this space the past two years, and well behaved enough that they are letting us back in this year! It’s a great space for our work with 4 collaborative workstations and plenty of tables and whiteboards.

Here are a few pictures from last years session in the Collaborative Center:

Maker principles

June19

We’ll spend some time on day one talking about making, dyi, and  and why things like open source and net neutrality matter. This statement of Maker Principles from the Colorado MakerHub will give us a starting point for that discussion. I am hoping we’ll run our session with these principles in action.
