CSU East Bay will host the first annual science and technology Hack Day on Saturday, April 16, 2016 from 8 am to 8 pm. Hack days offer unique opportunities to collaborate on focused tasks for a short period of time by a small group of individuals and produce remarkable results. Hack day events bridge the gap between science, technology and design and encourage future collaborations and community building among participants.

The first annual East Bay Hack Day will focus on

Diseases and Drones

and will encourage teams of student to rapidly prototype solutions to issues surrounding mosquito-borne diseases using land-based or flying drones.


The event will begin with a series of 10-minute motivational to orientate students in subject areas such as drone programming, current mosquito control surveillance and strategies, and issues surrounding aerial distribution of insecticides and transgenic mosquitoes. After the short presentations, students will break out into groups to brainstorm and develop their prototype or hack.

East Bay Hack Day is about creating a place where future scientists, engineers, and designers can collaborate together in order to develop novel solutions to long-standing problems. Whether its raising awareness, gathering data, delivering solutions, or the like, East Bay Hack Day welcomes all ideas.
