Space Apps Challenge

Are You Up For . . .

The Space Apps Challenge?

The International 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 four areas: Earth, Outer Space, Humans and Robotics.  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!

The Durham, NH location is being hosted by Caleigh MacPherson, caz62@wildcats.unh.edu, at the UNH InterOperability Laboratory on April 23-24, 2016.  Please like us on Facebook at facebook.com/SpaceAppsDurham and follow us on Twitter at twitter.com/SpaceAppsDurham for daily updates!
