Science Hack Day Houston
Saturday, May 26, 2012 at 10:00 AM - Sunday, May 27, 2012 at 4:00 PM (CDT)
Houston's first Science Hack Day, a 24-hour marathon for developers, designers, scientists, educators, and the community to come together to collaboratively create something awesome.
Hack Days were originally created by Yahoo! in 2005 and soon after became a worldwide trend. By collaborating on focused tasks during a short period of time, participants are capable of producing remarkable results. Science Hack Day specifically aims to facilitate the collaboration of individuals of all backgrounds to help make science more accessible, educational, and enjoyable for museum visitors and the community.
Science Hack Day brings together software developers, designers, scientists, web enthusiasts, educators, and anyone with a passion for making cool things.
When participants arrive, there will be a few speakers and an hour of brainstorming and proposing hack ideas. You can pitch ideas, or join up with projects you’re interested in. After that, teams are free to get to work on their hacks. On Sunday afternoon, everyone will reconvene to check out the hacks and award prizes to the favorites.
Have a great project in mind, and all you need is a designer and a web developer to make it happen? Science Hack Day is a great place to work with eager Houstonians with all sorts of skills and hobbies to bring your ideas to life. It’s OK if you don’t arrive with hack ideas, we need all the creative minds we can find to help contribute in whatever way they can.
