I’m excited to announce we’re accepting applications for the 2015 Science Hack Day Global Ambassador Program! You can find the application form below.

Science Hack Day is a 2-day-all-night event where anyone excited about making weird, silly or serious things with science comes together in the same physical space to see what they can prototype within 24 consecutive hours. Designers, developers, scientists and anyone who is excited about making things with science are welcome to attend – no experience in science or hacking is necessary, just an insatiable curiosity. The event is free to attend, organized by volunteers and supported by sponsors. Watch the video from Science Hack Day San Francisco to see what it’s like and flip through the Science Hack Day 50 report for a summary on the first 50 Science Hack Day events!

Anyone can organize a Science Hack Day! Check out the How-to Guide for getting started.

We’re happy this year to be able to award three (3) people from around the world who are interested in organizing a Science Hack Day with a scholarship for a trip to Science Hack Day in San Francisco, occurring October 24-25, 2015. In San Francisco, the three (3) selected Global Ambassadors will experience first-hand how Science Hack Day works and connect with a community of organizers. This Science Hack Day Ambassador Program will award three individuals who are motivated and planning to organize a Science Hack Day in their city in 2016.

If you or someone you know might be interested in organizing a Science Hack Day, please do apply to the Science Hack Day Ambassador Program below – we’re accepting applications until August 9, 2015!
