Science Hack Day’s mission is simply to get excited and make things with science, and that’s just what everyone did. One of the remarks I made at the start of this year’s event was about how building community is one of the best things to be involved in right now after the election, and especially connecting different communities together as Science Hack Day does. Exploration is not a solo endeavor and thus it’s less about what you explore and more about the act of exploring. In community exploration, we build strength, support, and safe spaces.
When I designed the Science Hack Day logo, I never expected to one day see it recreated with florescent E. coli.

A one-day event where participants conceptualize and create projects that have no value whatsoever.
It looks like this year’s Science Hack Day in San Francisco was particularly excellent.
Tantek told me about building a portable home planetarium—sounded like a blast.
This is a great summation of the origins of Science Hack Day from Ariel.
All the marvellous hacks from Science Hack Day San Francisco being demoed at the end of the event.
Mine is the first one up, five minutes in.
What a fantastic collection of creators!
A lovely hack from Science Hack Day San Francisco: get an idea of the size of CERN’s Large Hadron Collider by seeing it superimposed over your town.
It’s impossible to predict the creations that will spring forth when people gather in the spirit of participation, collaboration, and benign anarchy at the next Science Hack Day, but the results are certain to be inspired, and inspiring.
Photos from the first Science Hack Day in China which just wrapped up.
This is quite exciting: the Endnote project is sponsoring Science Hack Day globally—not just an individual event.
Here’s the font that Brian created at the line-mode browser hack day at CERN.
Well, this is nice: the Line-mode browser hack has been nominated in the Best Collaborative Project in the Net awards.
But 24 Ways has also been nominated, and let’s face it, that really is the best collaborative project.
This is a wonderful, wonderful round-up by KQED of the most recent Science Hack Day in San Francisco …a truly marvellous event.
Be sure to watch the accompanying video—it brought a tear to my eye.
This gives me a warm fuzzy glow. The Mefites are using Radio Free Earth to find out which stars are receiving the number one hits from their birthdays.

Registration is now open for Science Hack Day San Francisco at the end of September. Hope to see you there.
These are the lovely and talented people who will be joining me at CERN for two days of historical hackery.
