Now in its 8th year, NASA’s International Space Apps Challenge is an international hackathon for coders, scientists, designers, storytellers, makers, builders, technologists, and others in cities around the world, where teams engage with NASA’s free and open data to address real-world problems on Earth and in space. Space Apps 2018 included over 18,000 participants at more than 200 events in 75 countries.
Cyprus has more than excelled with 2 global wins and a 2nd place at the International stage. With a visit to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral in the offering for global winners let’s see if we can do it again this year!
This is a FREE open event.
What is a hackathon?
Traditionally, hackathons are technology development marathons that draw on the talents and initiative of bright-minded volunteers –such as software developers, engineers, technologists, designers, scientists, and anyone with a passion and desire to have an immediate impact on the world. Hackathons are open to anyone, and are focused on developing real solutions to global challenges by the end of the event. For each year’s International Space Apps Challenge, NASA designs challenges, and the Global Organizing Team work with local hosts around the world to implement events where teams work intensively to design solutions over the course of a 48-hour period.
Teams and individuals welcome. Come along and join an existing team if you think you have something to offer. Everyone welcome.
The event is FREE to everyone and will run from 10 am on Saturday October 19, through the night until end of play Sunday, October 20.
