Science Hack Day Houston is going on. April 5th & 6th, 2014 at the Houston Museum of Natural Science.
A Science Hack Day is all-day-all-night event that brings together inquisitive and creative minds to one place, to make wonderful things. Designers, developers, engineers, scientists and all card carrying geeks proudly bring their A-game to the same physical space for a brief but intense period of collaboration, hacking, and building ‘cool stuff’. By collaborating on focused tasks during this short period, small groups of makers are capable of producing remarkable results. Please register beforehand here.
No, a hack is a quick solution to a problem – maybe not the most elegant solution, but often the cleverest. On the web, mashups are a common example of hacking: mixing up data from different sources in new and interesting ways. Hacks can be either software or hardware (or a mix) and aim to bring to life interesting science.
Science Hack Day is for anyone with an interest in bringing science and technology together. If you’re a coder, designer, scientist, maker or simply an enthusiastic person with good ideas, Science Hack Day is for you. It is a social event with creativity and love of science at it’s heart. Let’s make some cool stuff.
