What is Science Hack Day?

Science Hack Day brings together designers, developers, scientists, and other geeks in the same physical space for a brief but intense period of collaboration, hacking and building cool stuff. The mission of Science Hack Day is to get excited and make things with science! By collaborating on focused tasks during this short period, small groups of hackers are capable of producing remarkable results. To get a feel for the energy and passion of the event check out this video from Science Hack Day San Francisco 2014.

What is Space Apps 2016?

NASA is on a mission to foster innovation around challenges affecting us at home and in space. Driven by that mission, Space Apps is a 48-hour annual hackathon coordinated by hundreds of remote teams and site-organizers. The goal is to inspire citizen teamwork for positive change across every skill level and discipline, with a solid focus on space and science.

We thought it would partner well with Science Hack Day, and wanted to further support Brooklyn nerds who might not be able to make it to the Manhattan Space Apps event with our awesome Brooklyn Data Bootcamp and Hack Day in Bushwick.


We invite anyone interested in science to attend and hack on a project that suits their interest, we'll pitch and select teams on the first day of the hackathon.



If you would like to sponsor the event, or bring down equipent or supplies, run a workshop or generally get involved fill out the form here.
