What is Science Hack Day?

Science Hack Day (SHD) is a global grassroots movement aimed at empowering people to explore, participate in, and contribute to science. The mission is simple - get people excited to build things with science! How does SHD work?


EndNote and Science Hack Day are Teaming Up!

Science Hack Day is made up of participants from all different backgrounds and with unique and diverse skill sets. But these science hackers have something in common – they like to solve problems, they enjoy building solutions, and they are excited by science. Just like we are at EndNote!

Science Hack Day
Washington, D.C.

The Wilson Center and Kennedy Center are proud to host the first ever Washington, D.C. Science Hack Day. These events have occurred over 50 times in 17 different countries but never in Washington, D.C.. Science Hack day is notorious for blending civic hackers, artists, designers and scientists that are collectively working toward the public good.

This is a 48-hour-all-night event where anyone excited about making weird, silly or serious things with science comes together in the same physical space to see what they can prototype over a weekend.

Designers, developers, scientists and anyone who is excited about making things with science are welcome to attend – no experience in science or hacking is necessary, just an insatiable curiosity.
