Join us October 20th-21st for the return of NASA's Space Apps Challenge in Bristol!

The Space Apps Challenge is your chance to collaborate on innovative solutions to global problems. Solutions are typically websites, apps, concepts, or hardware prototypes. All backgrounds are welcome.


The event takes place in the Students' Union building located in UWE's Frenchay Campus. High speed internet, ample parking, and close proximity to a bar and general store make this an ideal location.


Over a 31 hour period, teams will develop their solutions to selected challenges. At the conclusion of the event, teams will present their solution to a panel of judges to win awards. The top solutions will proceed to compete on a global level. Winners at the global level will receive an invitation to the Kennedy Space Center.

The challenges have now been announced and can be found here.
