Hacking the Wild: Madagascar

As part of the series of Hiking Hackathons, we launched an expedition to Madagascar in February 2015.

Brian Fisher, head entomologist at the Cal Academy of Sciences, Hannah Perner-Wilson, digital craft designer at Kobakant, and Andrew Quitmeyer, PhD student in Digital Naturalism, traveled to south Madagascar’s Anoyasan Mountain range to explore three main goals:

  • Discover a, yet unclassified, ant found by the 1971 French expedition on the summit of an unnamed mountain
  • Test new methodologies for crafting digital devices in harsh, rainforest conditions
  • Explore ways of documenting and sharing science and design research from the field
