The city of Belagavi is all set to host India’s first Science Hack Day on the 22nd and 23rd of October 2016. Science Hack Day is organized world over and this is the first event happening in India.
The motive of this event is to further collaboration by gathering creative and science minds into the same physical space and allowing them to explore and develop their ideas to learn from each other.
Let’s collaborate, learn, hack, build cool stuff and have lots of fun.
Apart from having hackers and makers who will take part in the 2 day all night event, there will also be Workshops conducted for 150 school children where they will be taught how to make simple things like a solar powered LED Lamp. The event is set to bring the best instructors from all over the globe in the pursuit of making science and learning fun and interesting
What is Science Hack Day?
Science Hack Day is a two-day event where anyone excited about making weird, silly or serious things with science comes together in the same physical space to see what they can prototype within 30 consecutive hours. Designers, developers, scientists and anyone who is excited about making things with science are welcome to attend – no experience in science or hacking is necessary, just an insatiable curiosity. The mission of Science Hack Day is to get excited and make things with science! People organically form multidisciplinary teams over the course of a weekend: particle physicists team up with designers, marketers join forces with open source rocket scientists, writers collaborate with molecular biologists, and developers partner with school kids. By collaborating on focused tasks during this short period, small groups of hackers are capable of producing remarkable results.
We have an amazing place called Sankalp Bhumi Farm Resort, Jaintan Mal, Belagavi for this event. It was once an abandoned quarry, today natures glory restored. The resort resembles an enchanting oasis, with a thick set of trees, sprawling lawns, and a large lagoon surrounded by picturesque expansive rock walls as backdrop.
Science Workshops for High school Students
Along with hacking we also have Science Workshops for Highschool kids. Workshops will run parallel to the main event. About 150 students from various highschools in and around Belagavi will participate in the workshops.
A dedicated team of volunteers, mainly engineering students and Science teachers, will conduct these hands on workshops. Students will be devided in to two batches. One batch will have Science Toys from Trash workshop and the other batch will have Soldering: Making Solar Lanterns Workshop.
