The Science Hack Day took place on the weekend prior to re:publica and was aimed at developers, designers, scientists and hackers, who are interested in bringing together science and technology. Science Hack Day is a sort of laboratory: all participants came equipped with an idea, which they – together with others – wanted to work on and develop.

For re:publica I implemented and organized the Science Hack Day – a hackathon format that has been established in 2010 by Ariel Waldman.

The Science Hack Day took place on 3 May and started around midday with a brief introduction and a few Lightning Talks with inspirations for the available resources (data, sources, provided materials). Followed by Idea pitches by the participants, who divide into team and started hacking afterwards. The following 24hours the participants worked on their projects until they presented the outcomes on 4 May.

At the Science Hack Day participants worked on 10 different projects, for example a glove with an integrated keyboard or a quatrocopter that can recharge itself through electromagnatic induction.

The Science Hack Day is part of the Science Lab @ re:publica – hosted by re:publica and Wissenschaftsjahr 2014.
