What is Science Hack Day?
Science Hack Day is a weekend long 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. Science Hack Day is inherently about mashing up ideas, mediums, industries and people to create sparks for future ideas, collaborations and inspirations to launch from.
The main goal of Science Hack Day is to breakdown the perception of a barrier to play with science. The event is less concerned with creating new products and startups and more focused on getting people without formal
science backgrounds to play and experiment with science for the first time.
Equally, scientists who attend the event are often experimenting with new technologies and collaborating outside their domain for the first time. By having a fresh set of eyes from those who solve different types of problems across a variety of industries inside and outside of science, new concepts often emerge and can go on to influence science and adults’ relationship to science in unexpected ways.
