What is Science Hack?

At Science Hack, you work for two days in teams of up to six people and with professional support on exciting and interesting challenges from the worlds of business and science.

Each problem combines issues from computer science with another scientific discipline.

The coolest projects are rewarded with attractive prizes!

How much programming experiences do I need?

While programming experience is almost essential for every team, the challanges will encourage you to use a diverse set of skills in approaching complex problems, so you don't have to be a coder to join.

Try to form teams that include people from different fields, but also make sure that there are coders in the team.

Do I need to bring my own laptop?

Yes, please bring a laptop. There will be WiFi and enough mains sockets for everyone.

Do I need to be a student?

Yes, only students and PhD-students can participate.

I'd like to participate with some friends. Can we register as team?

Not directly, but the application form has field for up to three other participants you'd like to see in your team.

Everyone has to apply on their own, but we try to take your wishes into account during the selection process.

We encourage you to form teams during the event. There will be many highly talented people from all the different fields so it is a great change to meet and learn from new people.

How does the application process work?

We, the coordination team for the 2. Science Hack will select the applicants.

Will there be food and drinks?

Yes, there will be free food and drinks for the whole event duration.

How about a place to sleep?

We will provide camp beds in separate rooms so you can have a good rest at night (you don't have to, of course).
