Hackathon

Hack the Universe

November 8, 2014 - November 9, 2014

The Hack the Universe challenge was a 24-hour solution-building event produced by the AMNH's BridgeUP: STEM educational program. This event involved 29 teams, who built 29 working prototypes, and worked with the museum's Digital Universe dataset to create new visualizations, helping to advance astronomy and astrophysics and working for the benefit of museums, galleries, libraries, and cultural institutions around the world (OpenGLAM).

All the projects are available as open source, open science projects licensed for any use on GitHub: https://github.com/amnh/HackTheUniverse/wiki

This program is part of BridgeUp: STEM, a new initiative educating youth and the public about cutting edge computing in scientific research and science communication. BridgeUp: STEM is generously supported by a grant from the Helen Gurley Brown Trust.
