Hack-e-bot
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Robot lovers and hackers unite for your newest project: the Hack-E-Bot! Part robot build, part computer hack -  use engineering, electronics, and programming to create a simple but insanely fun robot buddy. Start by assembling your robot with zip ties and screws, and then wire up a breadboard to connect the power supply and microcontroller. We'll show you how to use Arduino to program Hack-E-Bot to move anywhere we ask him to go. Then, add sensors to help Hack-E-Bot interact with the real world. From construction to customization, this little robot has sometime for every computer science fan, and with an array of upgrade options like logic chips and wireless controls, this is one project that will keep you tinkering for hours.

Turing's team, including Joan Clarke (Keira Knightley), analyze Enigma messages while he builds a machine to decipher them. Turing and team finally succeed and become heroes, but in 1952, the quiet genius encounters disgrace when authorities reveal he is gay and send him to prison.

Barbie Gets with the Program

While it may seem radical to imagine Barbie computing in the ’70s, the computer science field was actually far more gender balanced four decades ago than it is today. Experience the history of gender and computing through the lens of computer playsets from the 1970’s to today. Each is paired with the operable machines that inspired them.

Open April 1, 2017- September 3rd, 2017
