Climate Hack

19-21 January 2018

What is Climate Hack?

Over three days, four museums in Cambridge, will be handing over control to teams of people to shake up how they share stories about climate change.

From Friday morning to Sunday afternoon, participants will collaborate in multi-disciplinary teams to create a prototype museum installation or experience in one of our collections. The teams will be put together by the Climate Hack organisers to ensure that they each have the right combination of skills to bring a brilliant new idea to life – whether it's a 3D interactive, an audio interpretation, an immersive experience or a hands on challenge, the choice is yours! At the end of the weekend the prototypes will be revealed for the public to play with and enjoy.

To find out more and how to get involved, go to our Climate Hack webpage.
