Engineering Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

Participate in the Independent Activities Period at MIT by editing Wikipedia! Experienced and beginning editors alike are welcome: Experienced editors from the Libraries and Writing Program will provide an introduction to editing Wikipedia as well as assistance throughout the event.

The theme is "Engineering Wikipedia": help improve coverage of all things engineering on Wikipedia, with the help of MIT Libraries resources. This includes writing about underrepresented engineers, engineered structures and objects, and engineering concepts. Everyone is welcome and you don't have to be an engineer (either by discipline or MIT affiliation) to participate -- engineering is everywhere! Editing in multiple languages is welcome.

Bring your laptop or use the computers in the room. Snacks will be provided. Help us engineer Wikipedia to be more inclusive, comprehensive, and accurate! More information
