Coming in February 2018: Hack The Deep!

Applications will open soon for our fourth annual hackathon: Hack The Deep, February 9-11! We'll be solving challenges for various marine related research departments at the museum. We'll be exploring marine biology, physical processes in the ocean and climate, and the past of future of marine life!

Keep checking this space for more details, including the upcoming hackathon GitHub repository to learn more about Hack the Deep challenges, online resources, and datasets. You can also explore all our previous hackathons by checking out "past offerings" below.

Join the BridgeUP museum technologist mailing list today to stay in the loop by dropping us a line at bridgeuphackathon@amnh.org with the subject "Hackathon." Space will be limited, and the hackathon event often fills up before it is announced to the general public, so join our mailing list as soon as possible. If you have registered for a previous AMNH BridgeUP hackathon, don't worry, you're already on the mailing list!
