Join us in Downtown Berkeley for a Design Jam: Accelerating Science Through Technology.

What is a Design Jam?
A Design Jam is a mini-hackathon where a challenge/prompt is presented in the beginning of the event. The challenge will be related to solving problems related to the advancement of science. Attendees will be getting in groups of 5-6 and will have one hour to come up with an innovative solution to this problem.
