What is the NASA Space Apps Challenge?

For 48 hours, problem solvers from all over the world join NASA’s International Space Apps Challenge, one of the largest hackathons in the universe and part of NASA’s Open Innovation Program. NASA Scientists write the yearly challenges, which are based on real problems they face daily. NASA is on a mission to foster innovation through a diversity of perspectives. Empowered by open data, global citizens collaborate with strangers, colleagues, and friends to solve perplexing challenges in new and unexpected ways -- from designing an interactive space glove to natural language processing to clean water mapping. Students, experts, engineers, makers, artists, storytellers -- Space Apps is for everyone! 

We welcome ALL passionate problem solvers to join our community of innovators. Participants from across the globe have already created thousands of open-source solutions together through code, data visualizations, hardware and design. Last year we had participants from 6 continents and 161 cities participating at the Space Apps Challenge! 

Join us on April 29-30th 2017 to be a part of creating the next generation of space technology!

NASA Open Innovation Initiative is a model for innovation. The ability to contribute towards solving meaningful challenges is the most important motivator for most participants in mass collaboration.
