From building a lamp that lights up every time an asteroid or International Space Station flies by the Earth to mashing up accelerator lab data with sounds to hear what particle collisions in super colliders might sound like, web geeks and science geeks around the world are getting excited and making unexpected things with science – and you can, too!Science Hack Day
Science Hack Day is a 48-hour-all-night event that brings together designers, developers, scientists and other geeks in the same physical space for a brief but intense period of collaboration, hacking, and building 'cool stuff'. They're already beginning to pop up across the world in the coming months, from Dublin to Cape Town and a dozen cities in between.
