Science x Kickstarter Hackathon was held Feb. 28 and March 1 at the New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. The weekend was dedicated to collaboration among scientists, artists, designers and writers, and bringing those ideas to life. Kickstarter is a website to help fund creative projects through pledges and donations.

At this particular event, there were 16 projects that people could sign up for to help support a team in need. On Saturday, all 16 teams presented their projects:

Horyou found it interesting to learn about the projects and how dedicated the team members are to their success. With the help of Kickstarter and participants of this event, we hope to see these projects flourish and gain the exposure they need.

Thank you to Francois Grey from CERN for inviting us to this fantastic event.
