Hack the Dinos
November 22, 2015
Data is everywhere=E2=80=94from the smartphone in your pocket to scans of
specimens in our Museum collections. As part of the second annual
Hackathon, 100 hackers will spend a night coding at the Museum. Discover
how programmers and scientists are working together to mine the Museum=E2=
paleontology database, unlocking new ways to visualize and understand
current research. Hear first-hand accounts from the data trenches and
test your hand at coding. Explore how you, too, can get involved in
computer science, and find out what hackers can really create in 24 hours.
Try your hand at coding and explore how you, too, can get involved in
12:30 pm and 2 pm
Meet data scientists and Brown Scholars from our newest education
program, BridgeUp: STEM, as they discuss how computer science is used in
What can hackers really create in 24 hours? See what happens when
computer programmers hack into the Museum=E2=80=99s paleontology database.
As part of this special event join us for a screening of The Human Face
of Big Data.
This program is part of BridgeUp: STEM, a new initiative educating youth
and the public about cutting edge computing in scientific research and
BridgeUP: STEM is generously supported by a grant from the Helen Gurley
