I just ran across the article Hacking science: the intersection of web geeks and science geeks, by Ariel Waldman, on the Scientific American Guest Blog, thanks to someone on Google+ mentioning another article on the blog.

The brain storm of Jeremy Keith, Science Hack Day is a 48-hour marathon event intended to motivate adults to: "Get excited and make things with science!" The first of these events was held in London and the second in San Francisco, last year. This year, events are being planned in cities in Europe and across the North American continent.

The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation is offering ten scholarships to people interested in attending this year's event in San Francisco (November 12-13, 2011) and learning how to organize a Science Hack Day for their communities. The application deadline is September 2, 2011. For links to additional information, including the application, check out the article on the Scientific American Guest Blog.
