The Space Apps Challenge is happening for the first time in Bavaria in the city of Wuerzburg! This year the event will take place at the University of Wuerzburg.More information on our website.
The actual location is used by students to create prototype satellite designs. The organizers are all students of space science and technology and will be glad to help out wherever possible.
No matter what your background is, be it from computer science to art, from medicine to geography, we believe you have a lot to contribute to this Hackathon - with your knowledge, ideas and perspectives. Mark the date and register in-time! We encourage students of any faculty to take part - all we require is an interest in space, and an enthusiasm for collaboration across disciplines. That said, this event is not limited to students alone - anyone with some competent skills to offer can participate.
What can we offer?
A 3D printer and probably a 3D scanner will be there at the event. These can be used during the Hackathon, for teams that might require structural prototypes. There will also be at least 4 (or more) Raspberry Pi devices which can be used. Electronic measurement and soldering devices are also available at the venue. If you need anything specific, please contact us in advance so that the necessary arrangements can be made.
There is no dress code set for this event. Wear what you feel is most comfortable, since you will be sitting for long hours.
