Life in the city is complicated, and sometimes the only way to solve an urban problem is with a hack–a science hack, that is. Science hacks are low-cost, elegant workarounds that create useful scientific projects. Science Hack Day is a two-day event that brings together scientists, designers, developers and innovators who will invent, build and test their projects. You can participate in two ways:
– Join a team over the weekend to produce cool Science Hacks and compete for prizes. You can even submit your own pitch for a Science Hack you’d like others to help you with.
– Just stop by for our Citizen Science Explorers Program, and learn how to participate in a range of urban science projects, like swabbing bacteria on the subways to map the microbiome of NYC.
