The Nerdery - Overnight Website Challenge

Chicago 2012, November 17-18

Zoo Crew

Does a normal day in your office include the discovery of a new planet? Ours does!

We are a team of designers, developers, and educators who are passionate about using the web to blow people's minds (usually with science!). By day we pioneer approaches to online citizen science using rich HTML5 apps. We enable individuals all over the world to contribute to scientific discovery and understanding of our universe ... and by night we fight crimes against the internet.

Our projects–reaching a community of over 675,000 people globally–have aided in the discovery of new types of galaxies, 34 new planets, and (potentially) a new species of sea creature.

Based at the Adler Planetarium, the city of Chicago is always on our minds. We're constantly thinking about ways to bring our technologies, skills, and passions to awesome causes in our fantastic city!
