Theme: Light + Science
Bangkok Science Hack Day #shdbkk is part of the international Science Hack Day initiative.
This is going to be a fun and relaxed hackathon where the goal is to meet other scientists, geeks, hobbyists, developers and work on fun light/ science projects. We will have some great light project kits from adafruit for people to learn to solder, including the kit to build the item seen in the image below.
Join the first Science Hack Day in Bangkok! #scienceisawesome #light
"Science Hack Day is a 48-hour-all-night 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. Designers, developers, scientists and anyone who is excited about making things with science are welcome to attend – no experience in science or hacking is necessary, just an insatiable curiosity."
Attending the event: Please only sign up if you intend to hack at Science Hack Day for BOTH days. You must be registered under your name to attend the event - we do allow people to sign up to just come Sunday to see what everyone has managed to create.
Tickets: This is the first Science Hack Day in Bangkok, so we are making it free for you to attend!

Science Hack Day is a 48-hour-all-night event that brings together designers, developers, scientists and other enthusiastic geeks in the same physical space for a brief but intense period of collaboration, hacking, and building 'cool stuff'. A hack is a unique modification, an interesting mashup or a quick solution to a problem - maybe not the most elegant solution, but often the cleverest. The mission of Science Hack Day is to "get excited and make things with science!" Here's a video of what last year's event in San Francisco was like:
