Wiki-edit-a-thon with Stemettes
9 October 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Digital Science have teamed up with Stemettes to organise a Wiki-edit-a-thon in October with the aim of addressing the diversity imbalance in Wikipedia entries.
We’re looking for experienced editors plus those with no experience (but a lot of enthusiasm for writing and/or fact-checking!). Light refreshments will be provided.
Completely FREE, thanks to our wonderful sponsors Digital Science and the generous provision of a venue from Imperial College London.
Anyone can participate! You’ll get together with a bunch of like-minded people working towards a single goal – to improve the coverage of women in STEM and diversity on Wikipedia. In groups (remotely and in person) you’ll edit, research and write a backlog of Wikipedia pages.
New to Wikipedia editing? No worries! We’ll have at least one experienced Wikipedian to help guide beginners.
- Girls aged 15+
- Women (and Men) with a STEM background and are interested in inspiring the next generation.
We’ll be on site at Imperial College London. Upon arrival, report to reception to be registered and directed to the Wiki-edit-a-thon.
What you need to bring
- A laptop.
- Yourself and any great ideas you have.
- We will provide everything else.
We’ll have snacks on hand to feed those brains!
