NASA Space Apps Challenge

The NASA Space Apps Challenge is a 48-hour global hackathon engaging thousands of problem-solvers each year across the globe to work with NASA in designing creative solutions to international and interplanetary problems using open source data. The event is not just for coders, but for makers, designers, students, engineers, artists, and problem solvers. If you have a passion for space or “out of this world” problem-solving, then this event is for you!
