Emerging Technologies Wikipedia Workshop

Category: Workshop
Description:

Emerging Technologies Wikipedia Workshop

with Capital Area Biospace, MoCoMakers, and Rockville Science Center

Description

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. Wikimedia DC has two laptops to loan; you can reserve one by emailing info@wikimediadc.org.

Lunch will be provided!
