Applications for each event will open ~2-3 months before the event. Follow us on Twitter/ Facebook to stay informed
Participants are selected by the organisers depending on the application. Groups are formed by the organisers.
IN GROUPS OF 4, PARTICIPANTS WILL:
> find a scientific concept
> decide how they want to communicate this concept
> produce a short film aimed at a non-scientist audience
The short films are created with the aim of communicating fascinating scientific concepts and engaging members of the public with science. On the last evening of the event the films will be presented to a panel of judges who will award a prize to the film that best fulfils the aims of the hackathon. There is also an evening of science cinema that is free for all to attend.
WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
Scientists, Filmmakers, Artists and anyone with a passion for communicating science
