We are excited to announce that for the second year in a row, the NASA Glenn Research Center will be hosting the Cleveland location for the International Space Apps Challenge. The event will take place April 22-24, 2016 in NASA Glenn’s beautiful, state-of-the-art Mission Integration Center.
Since the NASA Glenn Research Center is celebrating its 75th Anniversary this year, we will have that as our theme.
We have many exciting features this year including:
Here are some photos from last year's event.
Participation is free!
The NASA Glenn Research Center is located next to Cleveland Hopkins Airport. For directions, see this map. More details on badging and parking will be sent out a week before the event.
Free food will be provided: continental breakfast on Saturday and Sunday, lunch on Saturday and Sunday, and dinner on Saturday.
Please join us! Participants of all ages, skills, and experience levels are encouraged to sign up. This is much more than a software hackathon.You MUST bring your own computer equipment. NASA Glenn will provide internet access, but WILL NOT provide computers for Challenge participants.
A local company, MakerGear, will be graciously bringing four (4) 3D printers for use by participants!
We will have a limited amount of Leap Motion, Oculus Rift, Intel RealSense and Kinect devices. Please note that displaying your Oculus Rift apps requires a very high performance computer. Laptops do not work. We will provide a computer capable of driving an Oculus Rift for actual testing with an Oculus.
A wealth of resources for your project work is available at https://github.com/SpaceApps2016/Resources.
If minors want to participate in photos, they will need to sign photo release and consent forms.
Participation at the host location is restricted to U.S.Citizens, Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs), also known as Permanent Resident Aliens (PRAs) or Green Card Holders, U.S. Citizens Representing a Foreign Entity, and persons with multiple citizenships (one of which is U.S.)
Unfortunately, participants will not be allowed to stay on base overnight.
