Registration for Space Apps is Closed

The International Space Apps Challenge is an international mass collaborative hackathon focused on space exploration that takes place over 48-hours in cities around the world. The event embraces collaborative problem solving with a goal of producing relevant open-source solutions to address global needs applicable to both life on Earth and life in space. NASA is leading this global collaboration along with a number of additional government collaborators and 100+ local partner organizations.

We are collaborating with Boston Children’s Museum this year.
The winning team’s project will be presented at their 1st annual Boston Mini Maker Faire on July 23, 2016.

In 2016, Boston returns with this event for round 3 of ground-breaking ideas. In addition to hosting our local teams, Boston will also host several special teams. These ‘mixed’ teams comprise of members from both the Boston and Tokyo ISAC, and satellite locations at U-Tokyo and will collaborate across continents.
