Want to join a hackathon? Solve challenges using NASA data! Prizes awarded to the best open-source solutions...
The NASA Space Apps Challenge is an international mass collaboration 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. This year we have over 25 challenges in six areas: Aeronautics, International Space Station, Solar System & Beyond, Technology, Earth and the Journey to Mars. NASA is leading this global collaboration along with a number of government collaborators and over 100 local organizing teams across the globe.
Anyone can participate in the International Space Apps Challenge. It requires individuals with a broad range of skills. We are looking for engineers, technologists, scientists, designers, artists, educators, students, entrepreneurs – anyone who has a passion for changing the world and is willing to contribute. Most people form a team and compete that way. There are prizes including tickets to see a NASA launch!
