Who we are

The SHD Berlin organizing team consists wholly of volunteers from the world’s of science, design, IT, engineering, communication, and the intersections between.

Join us!

If you’d like to get involved and join the team as as volunteer organiser just get in touch! Working in this project can be a great way to get in touch with interesting people, projects, and organisations in Berlin and in the wider science hacking scene and we’d be happy to share it with you.

Tap into our experience and expertise

Science Hack Day is a global, open, volunteer-run project with open source instructions that’s all about spreading grass-roots empowerment, collaboration and interdisciplinary innovation. We love to see projects that share this ethos popping up around the country and are really happy to offer our advice and share our experience. We have many years experience in running successful participatory hacking events and a strong community.

giuliaTrained philosopher of science, trying to live in between philosophy and physics. Sometimes wishes to have been born at Galileo’s time, when philosophy and physics were still considered one. While waiting for the invention of a time machine, experimenting Science Communication as a way to enthusiasm everyone into the philosophical meaning of science, and the scientific use of philosophy, and maybe a time machine won’t be needed anymore.
