Heritage Science Hackathon

Join UCL Institute of Sustainable Heritage at Here East for a Hertiage Science Hackathon:

Sat 18 May, 10:00 – Sun 19 May 2019, 18:30

The Auditorium @ UCL Here East, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London, E15 2GW

Team up with a broad range of heritage professionals, early career researchers, programmers and students to work on issues faced by local heritage institutions.

Use new technology and find new ways to present heritage science to new audiences.

What is Heritage Science?
Heritage science is cross-disciplinary scientific research to improve the understanding of, engagement with and management of cultural heritage.

What is a Hackathon?
A hackathon is a short period of time in which domain level experts join together to work collaboratively on projects. The goal of a hackathon is to come up with new solutions to old well identified problems.

What will I do?
Working in diverse teams you will create ideas/products/projects to help address the issues provided by the attending institutions. These should be wide and varied and we encourage you to think as far out of the box as possible – there will be no wrong answers!

Do I need to be able to code?
Not really! Unlike traditional hackathons, we don’t want you to necessarily create a fully functioning-fly-you-to-mars app in a day (though if you do that’s also great!). We want fully though out proposals for the participating institutions. This can be anything from a project proposal, a wireframe app, a prototype microscope of educational toolkit.

Are there prizes?
Yes?
