The first edition, held last year on August 09 and 10, was a successful one and saw the participation of some 71 scientists, students, technologists, andhackers from all horizons and of all ages. Projects that came out of the two-day hackathon varied from domotics, the science of Internet of Things and Robotics applied to the household and home security, to ways to hack productivity of egg-laying chickens using music, or the fight against locusts invasion using ultrasounds to interfere and disturb reproductive signals among male and female locusts. In the spirit of Science Hack Days, we achieved something beyond just building cool stuffs, and succeeded in building a network of science enthusiasts, passionate hackers, tech fans.
The CIDST and HABAKA Innovation HUB, satisfied with the outcome of the first edition, will organize the second edition with the financial support of Thomson Reuters Endnote, which will be a three-day hackathon this time, and still held on their grounds. For this, the meeting room, the library and the coworking space will be allotted for the participants, during three intensive, non-stop hacking days.
This edition will happen simultaneously with that of San Francisco SHD and Berlin SHD, and will be broadcast and made available in livestreaming. There will also be an online Hangout between participants and organizers from those three countries.
This edition will welcome participants from two other provinces of Madagascar, for instance Fianarantsoa and Antsiranana. This is the beginning of a nationwide dissemination of the event.
Science Hack Day (SHD) is a means of promoting innovation, science and technology, as well as a way of putting into light all researchers and inventors working in their corners, without recognition nor support. SHD can also trigger the inner hacker within everyone of us.
Subscription is free of charge but is mandatory to attend and participate at the event.
Free meals will be offered to participants for the three days, including breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Science Hack Day is open to people of all ages, backgrounds and sectors, so if you would like to attend, feel free to get involved and make something cool with science! You don’t have to be a scientist or have a knowledge of science to attend, just have bags of enthusiasm!
