Applications have closed for the fourth annual hackathon—Hack the Deep, February 9–11.

We will be solving challenges relating to different aspects of marine research being conducted at the the Museum. We'll be exploring marine biology, physical processes in the ocean and climate, and the past and 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 hackathon’s technologist mailing list today to stay in the loop about future hackathons by dropping us a line at bridgeuphackathon@amnh.org with the subject "Hackathon." Space is 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 BridgeUP: STEM hackathon, don't worry, you're already on the mailing list.
