Science Hack Day Berlin 2018

We’re back! The best science hack day of the year 2018 in Berlin is happening 2nd to 4th November at the magnificent Motion Lab in Berlin Treptow. It will be a long weekend full of ideas, noodling, and hacksperimentation with your favourite old and new science friends!

Scientists, artists, developers, designers, and renaissance-types are invited to pitch projects and team up for 48 hours of rapid prototyping. We'll provide machines (laser cutters, 3D printers, crafting shiznits) and you will have access to the Science Hack Day library of hardware awesomeness (micro-controllers, motors, textiles, body sensors...). We'll also have interventions and lightening talks from members the DIY/Science Hacking scene to keep you inspired throughout the whole weekend.

Space is limited to 80 participants and tickets go really fast (sometimes within 24 hours), so don't think about it too long ;-)

Please only sign up to a ticket category that best reflects you. If your category is already full please sign up to our waiting list below. There is still a very good chance we will wrangle you in.
