Science and the City is an annual weekend-long hackfest co-organized by NYU’s CUSP, the Center for Urban Science and Progress, and ITP, the Interactive Telecommunications Programme. The theme is citizen science for exploring and improving our urban environment. Some of the featured technologies we’ll be hacking on this year are Google Glass, DIY drones and software for crowdsourcing experiments.
You don’t have to be a geek to participate – good citizen science projects need a range of skills, from design to communication to local knowledge about New York’s urban environment. Whether you want to pitch a project yourself, or are just curious to see what CUSP and ITP students are working on in this space, come and join the fun!
