The mission of Science Hack Day is to get excited and make things with science! A Hack Day is a 48-hour-all-night event that brings together designers, developers, scientists and other geeks in the same physical space for a brief but intense period of collaboration, hacking, and building ‘cool stuff’. Hack Days were originally created by Yahoo! in 2005 and soon after became a worldwide trend. By collaborating on focused tasks during this short period, small groups of hackers are capable of producing remarkable results.

Make use of the past to come up with solutions for the future! This is the challenge presented by the second Euregion Science Hack Day to be held at the Continium, Kerkrade, on 21 & 22 June 2014. You will have 48 hours to create something new, together with a team of programmers, designers, coders, hackers, engineers, students and other creative enthusiasts. Anything, a smartphone app, game, gadget, or software, hardware, or a combination of things, you name it.
