Welcome to miniWOW PDX!

Based on the Mozilla Science Lab's Working Open Workshops in Berlin (2016) http://bit.ly/moz_wow and Montreal (2017) https://mzl.la/2017wow

Registration closes on April 7, 2017! To register, please fill out this form.

Do you have an idea for a project that will help the scientific community or impact the way scientists work? It could be software, an advocacy project, an effort to bring science to the people, or something else entirely. Getting a project off the ground is daunting, and most of us aren’t trained in project management and community building skills.

At our first mini Working Open Workshop, Mozilla Science Lab staff, Fellows, and community will run a set of trainings to help participants take projects from idea to launch. This page will serve as a resource for all session materials. Save the date for the Mozilla Global Sprint on June 1 - 2 2017!

This event is sponsored by Mozilla Science Lab, The OHSU Library, and Women in Science Portland.

Full disclosure: We will accept registrations after 4/7/17, but please register ASAP so we can get yummy food.
