Wiki Edit-a-Thon – Emerging Technologies


Emerging Technologies Wikipedia Workshop and Edit-a-thon
This is a joint event between: Capital Area Biospace, MoCoMakers, Rockville Science Center, and Wikimedia DC

This workshop will bring together DIY biologists and makers from across the DC area with experienced Wikipedians. Learn about emerging technologies like synthetic biology, nanotechnology, robotics, and more! Afterwards, we’ll teach you how to improve Wikipedia articles on science and engineering topics of your choice.

As the web’s most visited reference site, Wikipedia is a starting point for both scientists and non-scientists to learn about technology topics. Wikipedia is openly editable, meaning that you can improve the quality and accuracy of Wikipedia entries. During this training, you will learn the basics of how to edit Wikipedia articles, and practice these skills with experienced Wikipedians.

Laptops are required. Please bring your own. We have a small number of laptops that we can share, if needed.

Lunch will be provided!
