Science Hack Day

Science Hack Day returned to Chicago on April 12-13! We had an epic 30 hour hackathon as software developers, designers, scientists and educators came together to create and prototype amazingly unexpected hacks. At the Adler's first Science Hack Day, hacks ranged from mind reading video games to Galaxy karaoke–so we expected the unexpected.

Random Hacks of Kindness Junior

On Sunday, April 27, teams of middle-schoolers assembled at the Adler to address some of the most complex challenges facing our society. Working alongside local charities and web developers, these young innovators learned more about local community needs and helped design practical, open source technology solutions.
