Brighton Science Festival
Saturday 22 - Sunday 23 FEBRUARY 2014
Join us for a Met Office hosted hackathon to create new weather- or climate-related activities and resources
What happens when scientists, artists, designers, engineers, teachers, students and anyone else who wants to join in are put together in a room for a whole weekend to come up with some new ideas?
This hackathon, hosted by the Met Office, will involve folk from a wide range of disciplines. Over two days, experts and enthusiasts from around the UK will come together to create new weather- or climate-related activities and resources, and we’d love you to come along and get involved too.
Perhaps you’ve got a great idea for using a Raspberry Pi in class but don’t know where to start. Or maybe you’d like to know how Met Office scientists are working with artists and digital designers to communicate climate science. If you’d like to get hands-on and stuck in, or if you’d just like a chat about what goes on at a hackathon, then drop in and interrupt the teams hard at work. Expect 3D printing, sewing, drawing, and possibly a bit of coding!
Times: Saturday 22 February (11am – 6pm) and Sunday 23 February (10am – 3pm)
Enquiries: Met Office
Ticket Price: Free event
Booking link: You don’t have to book but if you’d like to, you can register your interest at Lanyrd.
To follow the conversation, and for any enquiries, chat the SciActiHack on Twitter – @SciActiHack.
This event is run as part of Brighton Science Festival. Led by the Met Office and supported by RS Components.
