The people have spoken! This is the project that captured our hearts.
The NASA Space Apps Challenge is a two day hackathon held in cities around the world. Last year, over 25,000 people attended 187 Space Apps events globally.
The aim is to bring together participants from various fields to present solutions to global challenges, using NASA’s open data. Competitors can either arrive in already formed groups, or as individuals to join a group or form a group with other individuals. These teams will then select one of the problems posed by NASA and spend the weekend coming up with an innovative solution, using the free data NASA provides to the public. At the end of the event, each team will pitch their idea to a panel of judges who will select the most promising ideas as winners.
The main event will be held at the Innovation & Collaboration Centre (Level 2 of the UniSA Cancer Research Institute, above the UniSA MOD) on the 20th and 21st of October. Competitors are expected to arrive at 9:00am for a 9:30am start, running until 5:00pm both days.
Morning tea, lunch, and afternoon tea will be provided free for all competitors, as well as tea and coffee
It is important to note that computers will not be provided so make sure to bring your own laptop, or at least make sure there will be one brought for your group.
There are limited places available, to sign up, the registration page can be found at: https://2018.spaceappschallenge.org/
