We’re hosting a Google Hangout on Air with Google Science Fair on May 29! Our host will be none other than Dr. Joe Hanson of It’s Okay To Be Smart — his blog is one of the best places on the internet.

During the hangout, we’ll introduce EyeWire and answer questions. Anyone can join and watch live. RSVP here.

About the hangout:

The race is on to map brains — and one way we’ll get there is through games.

Join +Amy Robinson from the computational neuroscience lab at MIT  creating +EyeWire, a game to map the human brain. She’ll tell you how 6 months ago her team launched a game mapping the 3D structure of neurons in a brain. Over 60,000 people from 130 countries have played to date. They’re rapidly advancing our quest to understand the mysteries of how the mind makes you who you are.

What can we learn about our own brains from playing games? Come to the Hangout and find out! Post your questions here on the Event Page for Amy to answer with the #GSF2013.

Wednesday, 29 May, 12:00PM PT / 2:00PM CT / 3:00PM ET / 1900 GMT / 2000 UTC / 2100 CET

Google Science Fair Hangout on Air eyeWire


EyeWire may begin hosting Google+ hangouts with players and producing a monthly video news update. Let us know what you think about this in the comments section.

We also hosted a hangout for university students in Algeria with TEDxAnnaba on May 26! This event wasn’t open to the public but was great fun and a good opportunity for our team to learn about EyeWire challenges in low-bandwidth areas.

TEDxAnnaba’s Medhi Dib made a rad promo video (in French). We love it and thought we’d share.
