The 24-hour science challenge is a crazy idea devised by Damien Farine and Ari Strandburg-Peshkin to promote productivity, collaboration, transparency, and fun in the exploration of novel scientific ideas!

The basic premise is to develop, perform analysis, and write up a scientific project within a 24-hour period. The results should be posted on a public repository for the world to see.

Check out the rules here.

See the results from our challenge on Nov 17 - Nov 18, 2014 here.

Update: A revised version of our original manuscript has been published in Royal Society Open Science (including reviews). Check it out here!
