Looks like a great idea.
From their site:
The Biology and Built Environment Center is hosting a Microbiome Science Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon on May 27th, 2016 at the University of Oregon. The objective of this event is to facilitate the contribution of microbiome science edits and topics to a globally-used public knowledge resource (Wikipedia). No previous editing experience is necessary.
Coffee and light snacks will be provided.
Please bring your own laptops.
Twitter hashtags: #wikiMicrobiome2016
RSVP here Please let us know if you will be attending, might be attending, or will be attending remotely.
Those unable to attend in person are invited to RSVP and become Wikipedia editors remotely, and edit pages listed below.
I hope many will try to participate. I will be teaching then so not sure I can …
They have lots of suggestions for pages to edit or create and there is lots to do.
