How It Works

Participants (that's you!) will create or join a project team, and work with that team for the duration of the weekend.

A project can be anything about sharing science on the web. It might be a way to communicate ideas, visualize a dataset, or even recruit help! If you have an idea you're excited about, you should create a project. And if you are interested in seeing what others have proposed, then you can browse all the other projects.
