The inaugural IQ HACKATHON was a huge success! Thank you to Engine 4, Parallel 18 Startups and all of the mentors for their support. And a huge shout out to our amazing students who did a spectacular job.
Please join us tomorrow afternoon to celebrate the incredible work done by this inspiring group of researchers.
Next Wednesday and Thursday is our final Hackathon. I would not miss this for anything.

#BrainsMindsMachines Workshop for our REU students was a great success. Thank you to the MIT Center for Brains Minds and Machines (@MIT_CBMM), Hector de Jesús Cortés (@HecDJC), Josefina Correa Menendez and Taylor Baum for sharing your knowledge and enthusiasm for science and computation with us.
Thank you to Patrick Kimes (Dana Farber Cancer Institute) and Kelly Street (Harvard THChan School of Public Health) for facilitating the Replicability Hackathon for our 2019 IQ BIO REU students. Legends in the making!

On Saturday we visited the Arecibo Observatory to meet students from the AO REU (http://outreach.naic.edu/ao/REUT). They gave us a super cool tour of the control room and even got to see one student observing as we were there. Thank you for reminding us that “we are made from star stuff”
Last Saturday we visited El verde Field Station. Even though we somehow got on the wrong bus, we made it to the rainforest. There, we met the students from the Tropical Ecology REU http://reu.ites.upr.edu and heard about their amazing projects. Thank you to the students and REU staff for sharing your research with us and for guiding us through the rain forest.
