Adler Hack Labs
Hack Your World: Virtual, Visual, and Sound Environments
Hack (v) - a clever solution to a tricky problem
Have you ever been bored with the things you see every day? Do you think about adding to them, or rearranging them, or using parts of your environments, along with technology, to turn them into something new? If so, then then the Adler Planetarium's free Hack Labs may be for you!
There are a lot of ways people respond to their environments, and you're going to learn how to hack them. From learning how to mix environmental sounds into music to building and create content for Virtual Reality viewers, you'll be able to hack the world. Hack Labs will culminate in student-chosen projects that will allow you to use your hacking skills to change your community for the better.
Students who successfully complete the Hack Labs will also receive a stipend of $400, in two installments. This stipend is intended to cover your transportation and other costs of your participation in this program. You will also be invited to share your work during the Adler's Earthfest event. See below for full program dates and schedules.
