Wikipedia edit-a-thon

The Royal Society and the Royal Academy of Engineering Women in Science Wikipedia Edit-a-thon.

Help celebrate International Women's Day ahead of Saturday 8 March with the Royal Society and Royal Academy of Engineering.

Following successful events in 2012 and 2013, we are again promoting diversity in science and engineering with an afternoon and evening event for people who want to edit Wikipedia.

Both new and experienced editors are welcome - there will be training sessions at 2.20pm and 6.20pm for those new to editing, and experienced editors will be on hand to help.

There will be a number of suggested topics for editing, but you are welcome to bring your own ideas.

Please bring a laptop if possible, though some will be available. There will be wifi internet access.

Also, please bring any books you need to use as references, and the resources of the Royal Society library will be available until shortly before 5pm.

Register for the event

Attendance is free, but you will need to register.

Please note: the event is now fully booked, but you can sign up to the waiting list, or participate online. See the wikipedia page for further information.
