What is Science Hack Day?

Science Hack Day is a 48-hour-all-night event for anyone excited about making weird, silly or serious things with science. Participants will join in the same physical space to see what they can prototype within 24 consecutive hours. Designers, developers, scientists and anyone who is excited about making things with science is welcome to attend – no experience in science or hacking is necessary, just an insatiable curiosity.
