Ariel Waldman is an open science pioneer, and we are delighted she will speak at our Boing Boing: Ingenuity theatrical experience on Sunday, August 18, in San Francisco! Not only that, but Ariel has been tirelessly working with us to orchestrate the Boing Boing Ingenuity: Data Driven hack day taking place the day before the live show.
As creator of Spacehack, lead instigator of the global Science Hack Day, and a "Future for Good" Fellow at Institute for the Future, Ariel is dedicated to instilling a sense of wonder, curiosity, and passion about science, and empowering everyone to get involved in scientific research. Ariel was recently honored by the White House as a "Champion of Change" dedicated to "increasing public engagement in science and science literacy." Above, watch Ariel talk open science in a recent interview for the Syfy channel.
