What is Science Hack Day?
Science Hack Day is a two-day event where anyone excited about making weird, silly or serious things with science comes together in the same physical space to see what they can prototype within 24 consecutive hours. Attendees organically form multidisciplinary teams over the weekend. Science Hack Day is inherently about mashing up ideas, mediums, industries and people to create sparks for future ideas, collaborations and inspirations to launch from.
The mission of Science Hack Day is simply to get excited and make things with science. Designers, developers, scientists and people from any background are welcome to attend – no experience in science or hacking is necessary, just an insatiable curiosity. The event is entirely free to attend, organized by volunteers, and supported via sponsors.
2018 will be our 9th annual event in San Francisco! Here’s a video from one of our previous events that shows what the event is like:
