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 what came out of a previous year’s event.
swissnex San Francisco is a proud sponsor of the 2013 event and, with the support of MeteoSwiss and the University of Geneva, provides new datasets on Swiss clouds, cell cycle gene expression, and the human exome.
Science Hack Day is for anyone with an interest in bringing science and technology together. If you’re a coder, designer, scientist, hacker or just an enthusiastic person with good ideas, Science Hack Day is for you.
