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!
