Episode 101 - Hello World
A notice board that disguises the front entrance of the clubhouse
A DIY knock lock
Watch Rebelle and Ava fight to the death with their light-up swords as they glide and joust across the room on rolling chairs, inspired by this XCKD comic. Ana and Rebelle hastily taped some glow sticks to their foam swords but if they had more time they might have made a light-up sword like this tutorial from Adafruit!
For your inside scoop: The Notice Board covering the girls' clubhouse door in the library is based on a real MIT Prank. Food for thought if you ever want to hide your own secret room!
OK, but can we talk about how cool that secret knock was? Ava must have used an Arduino kit to create the controlled DIY lock and OMG I need one for my room! #NoParentsAllowed!

Episode 103 - The Prisoners Dilemma
An amethyst GPS tracker
White Hat, Black Hat
The girls are sneaky this episode when they give Mrs. Hein a pendant that has a GPS tracker inside. Of course, being a moral person, Tina refuses to share location stats on someone without their knowledge. Even thought Tina's defiance makes Ava's brain short-circuit, they still let Tina into the Secret Society.
Some people )including Mrs. Hein_ believe that wifi radiation is harmful (Spoiler Alert: it isn't). Some people also believe that crystals have "powers" that shield you from electronic radiation (More Spoilers: they don't). Everyone is free to believe what they want to, but unfortunately science doesn't back them up on those ideas!
Did you think Tina was talking about coloured hats for no reason? Think again. In internet lore a “white hat” refers to an ethical computer hacker, or a computer security expert, who specializes in testing software to ensure the security of information systems. A “black hat” hackers are criminals who break into computer networks with malicious intent. They may also release malware that destroys files, holds computers hostage, or steal passwords, credit card numbers, and other personal information.
tl;dr use your hacking powers for good!
