About Image
  • Breaking down barriers and starting a Citizen Science movement

    The main goal of Science Hack Day is to breakdown the barrier to play with science. The events are less concerned with creating new startups and more focused on getting people without formal science backgrounds to learn and experiment and to start to make their independent decisions based on the knowledge and experience they gain.

  • Empowering people through Science

    Science should be something that is disruptively accessible – empowering people from a variety of different backgrounds to explore, participate in, and build new ways of interacting with and contributing to science and to a society where informed citizens make decisions together. 

  • New Concepts Emerge

    Scientists who attend the event are often experimenting with new technologies and collaborating outside their domain for the first time. When participants from diverse backgrounds engage in solving problems with a fresh set of eyes, new concepts emerge and go on to influence science and everyone's relationship in unexpected ways.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a hack?

A hack is a quick solution to a problem – maybe not always the most elegant solution, but a quick and clever one. 

What is a science hack day?

The mission of Science Hack Day is to get excited and make things with science! People organically form multidisciplinary teams over the course of the event: Physicists team up with designers, marketers join forces with open source rocket scientists, writers collaborate with biologists, and developers partner with school kids. By collaborating a small group of people is capable of producing amazing results.

What should I hack on?

We all know common examples of hacks on he web, such as mashups, which mix up data from different sources in new and interesting ways. A hack can involve software, hardware, APIs, even food and bio hacking is possible. Give your fantasy a free ride!

Some Ideas to Hack on

I am not a hacker. Can I participate?

Yes, of course. Please join us! Everyone is welcome. Makers, designers, developers, scientists and anyone who is excited about making things with science attend – no experience in science or hacking is necessary, just an insatiable curiosity. If you like to create new things, you already have the spirit of a creator, maker and hacker!
