Registration for Space Apps is Closed

Calling all hackers, hustlers, and hipsters! Can you code, design, make, create, think, innovate, or just interested in anything awesome, new or techy? We want you! Join us for the Melbourne chapter of the International Space Apps Challenge.

You can make anything! It can be code, hardware, artistic, whatever you like. As long as you have something to present on Sunday afternoon. It's not just about Space though, yes there are challenges around the Space Station, our Solar System, and the Mission to Mars, but problems also include aeronautics, Earth, and technology - the scope is massive! Official challenges can be found here:

Get a chance to play with NASA's stuff, meet awesome people, build something really sweet in just one weekend, win awesome prizes, and get the chance to go and see a rocket launch with the NASA crew.

There's tonnes of prizes, small competitions, and fun things for this weekend. Be sure not to miss this epic event of 2016 as you get the chance to compete on a global scale.

Come as a team, or find awesome peeps on the day! There will be a great chance for networking before the hackathon starts.
