Based on his best selling book, "Little Brother", author Cory Doctorow told students the story of a group of teens held as suspected terrorists after an attack.
The teens then hack their X-boxes into the Internet to begin protesting without being tracked.
"The Day of Doctorow" is part of an intiative to bring awareness to teens on emerging technology and whether people should sacrifice personal freedoms.
Students also learned more about the science behind the fiction in Doctorow's book by participating in interactive mini labs on numerous topics, including video-game design, hacking the Internet, cell phone forensics and the very fiber and light that bring the Internet to life.
Doctorow is also the author of several other novels, including "For the Win" and "Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom."
