Welcome to Space Apps Greensboro!

We need students, artists, technologists, scientists, designers, educators, entrepreneurs, and developers to come together with people across the globe collaborate to design innovative solutions for global challenges.

On Friday evening we'll be meeting for snacks and talks to give us some context around the challenges that we'll be working on over the weekend. We will be meeting in the Lea Center, on the first floor of Main Building
On Saturday morning, registration is in Proctor Hall West (building 9 on the map) in the atrium on the 2nd floor). We’ll start the day watching the event launch video from NASA and the Global Space Apps Coordination Team and then listen to pitches for projects to solve the challenges that our site has chosen to work on. If you have a favorite challenge or an idea for a solution, come prepared to pitch your idea and recruit a team to work with you! By 11am we'll be splitting up into teams and settling down to work.
You'll have the rest of the weekend to work on the project that you have chosen. You can work on more than one project, if you choose, and some people with especially in demand skills -- such as artists and designers -- often have the chance to collaborate with teams from around the world throughout the weekend.
On Sunday afternoon at about 3pm, all the teams will start preparing their presentations to share their work with the world. You'll upload code, documentation and designs to GitHub.com, and fill out an online form on this website so that local and international judges have a way to see what you've done. At 4pm we'll stop work on our projects, and then each team will present what they've done to the community and local judges. At 5:30 our judges will present certificates and awards to all of the local teams and announce which teams have been chosen to go on for international judging. After that, all the participants will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite project to receive the People's Choice award for Greensboro, which will also go on for the chance to get an international prize.
We are also excited to be partnering with Expedition STEM to podcast our location.Kids Space Apps!
