This interactive event will take us to the heart of how the internet works. How exactly does YouTube show you videos so quickly? What are BitCoins and how do you get one? How does information move from one computer to another? We will answer these questions and more as we tinker with code, rotating through different stations doing everything from seeing how your Snapchat snaps move through space to learning how to hack a bank [simulated, of course].
This event will take place in Computer Lab Room E308A. Free parking is available in the Peavine Visitor Lot and the Oxford Road Parking Deck. This event also takes place earlier at 6:30pm.
