Change is bacon. We all crave it. At Sparkling Science we support change by impact, while also having fun along the ride and taking great pride in our work. In all we do we strive to be global, inclusive and radically open. Sparkling Science is a platform for inter-hackerspace collaboration. A place to show case your hacker space to the global DIY community, view and interact with other hackerspaces, collaborate across projects & find people and tools in your region. Come to our demo to learn more about all the things we do and get some of our awesome stickers!
We are also proud translators of the OSHW definition, supporters of the global TEDx community and initiators of the hacker-space-in-a-box project (more info will be provided during the summit).
Mind the scrap, love DIY!
