Thank you all for coming to Exeter!

The Met Office in Exeter is very proud to be hosting an event for the NASA International Space Apps Challenge for the fifth year in a row.

Met Office scientists, programmers and engineers will be joined in Exeter by science and technology enthusiasts and professionals from around the UK.

Event Information

The Met Office HQ in Exeter is located next to the M5 between junctions 29 and 30. For detailed directions please visit the Met Office website.

As always Space Apps is a free event and food will be provided!

The weekend will be about meeting new people and solving interesting challenges together. Don't let the 'Apps' part put you off, the best teams are often the most diverse teams in terms of age, skills and experience. We have seen great projects made entirely from cardboard!
