Science Hack Day + Space Apps 2016

This April 22-24th, the Mozilla Science Lab is partnering with CartoDB to host a 2 day event called Science Hack Day in Brooklyn, New York, USA. This will coincide with the international Space Apps Challenge, a global event aimed at engaging developers, designers and science enthusiasts in working with space and scientific data. Naturally, we’d love for you to join us and help spread the word!

On April 22nd, just prior to the main event days¬†April 23-24th , we’ll be hosting a light mixer and bootcamp science fair with multiple mini-workshops where you can learn more about science data mining, pitching hackathon ideas, designing for science, working with version control and Github, and otherwise building skills for application development at the event that weekend or beyond.

To help guide projects, NASA put together some themes and challenge prompts, but we’re rather open to whatever you might propose to work on in the domains of science and code, and we’ll likely plug projects for our Global Sprint as well. Feel free to tweet @scihackdayNY with your suggestions!
