Medical tech hackathon at Copernicus Science Centre, Poland

August 10th, 2017 No comments

For a second time within a year, I was invited by the Copernicus Science Centre in Warsaw, Poland to run a participatory research hackathon with them. The challenge this time was to improve the ergonomics of an EEG headset for infants. I supported the creation of promotinal materials, invited over a 3D printer filaments company and sourced entire tables full of components, tools and materials to use, including a fully featured resin and silicone casting unit. The event took place on the weekend of 5-6 August, it was a great experience, the participants very creative, and I got some decent street cred, working with the Open Science Foundation for a second, and definitely not last, time. The third hackathon I’ve run so far!
