Do you <3 science and want to share the love? Have you been to science hack day or do you know our science hacking community from our meetups? Are you down for organising a little guerrilla knowledge transfer, community building and interdisciplinary awesomeness?
We have been building experience for 4 years and we really want to share it around and grow our science hacking family. Our dream for this year is to grow a big and resilient team of open folks, bringing in new ideas, new energy, and new connections. So if you want to be part of a project making science to be something more accessible to everyone COME JOIN US!
What you’re signing up to:
We haven’t yet fixed a date, but SHDB17 will be sometime this autumn.. likely in October. Joining the volunteer organising team means sharing responsibility for making science hack day happen: monthly tuesday evening team meetings (part getting-shit-done, part family dinner :)), plus a little homework. Things usually get a little more intense during the 4-6 week push before the event possibly taking up a little more time. The tasks range from wooing sponsors (VERY important), to organising catering and facilities, ordering and organising SHDB’s hardware and electronics stash, to writing blog posts and doing social media, reaching out to cool lightning speakers, recruiting new participants, or ______ (your idea here). There is something for everyone
What you get in return:
The chance to meet like-minded folks, a great excuse for contacting and connecting with new interesting science/hacking people and sponsors, that warm glow you get when you help to free science from the ivory tower and much more you will discover yourself…
Sound interesting? Our first meeting will be Tuesday 21st Feb, 7PM, kindly hosted by IXDS (Paul-Lincke-Ufer 39-40, 10999 Berlin). We will take a look through what that need doing and start sharing out tasks. If you plan to come please drop us a line ([email protected]) so we know how many people to plan for.
See you soon!
The Science Hacking Family
