NASA is inviting coders, entrepreneurs, scientists, designers, storytellers, makers, builders, artists, and technologists to come together on October 1 and 2, in a global hackathon. Over two days, participants from around the world will form in-person and virtual teams to solve challenges using NASA’s open-source data.
The Space Apps Challenge, which started in 2012, has become the largest annual global hackathon in the world. While NASA provides awards to the top projects, the Space Apps mission is focused on inspiring collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking; fostering interest in Earth and space science and exploration; and encouraging growth and diversity in the next generation of scientists, technologists, designers, engineers, and artists.
The 2022 event theme is “Make Space,” celebrating the challenge motto of “there’s always space for one more.” Space Apps is for anyone and everyone, including students and those who have never “hacked” before. All passionate problem-solvers are encouraged to join. Register for a local in-person or virtual event near you; locations will be added throughout August. If no event is near you, you can register for the Universal Event, welcoming participants from all over the globe.
Deadlines: Challenge will start on October 1, 2022, at 9:00 a.m. (local time); project submissions are due by October 2, 2022, at 11:59 p.m. (local time). Registration will remain open through October 2, 2022. Visit the website for additional details.
