Our department has been heading to the Field Studies Council Juniper Hall centre for a while now. This year we are planning to combine a geocaching project with the Olympic Road Race passing through the area. So, it was with great excitement that I received an email from the people behind the FSC Hack Day
The aim of the day is to bring the outdoors and technology together, and I’m really excited to have the chance to help shape some of the challenges and agenda of the day. A Hack Day:
“is a 48-hour-all-night event that brings together an array of people, from scientists to developers (and anyone with good ideas) in the same physical space for a brief but intense period of collaboration, hacking, and building 'cool stuff'. A hack is a quick solution to a problem - maybe not the most elegant solution, but often the cleverest.”
This all sounds very exciting, and I’m very much looking forward to being involved. I would recommend getting involved yourself by heading over to the website, joining the lanyrd page and contacting the team.
Hope to see you there!
